Summary0001057: No error message when opening recent module files
Description

If you try to access a recent file unsuccessfully, it should probably give you an error message. The current behaviour is a NO-OP.

Steps To Reproduce

Open a module file
Close the module file
Delete the module file from disk
Try opening the module file from the list of recently opened files
Nothing happens - should ideally report the error message generated by the operating system, e.g. file not found, disk not mounted etc.

TagsNo tags attached.
Has the bug occurred in previous versions?Yes
Tested code revision (in case you know it)

I know that the behaviour you describe definitely existed many years ago but nowadays you should get an error message like this when a file cannot be found: "Unable to open "<filename>": file does not exist."

Without any further information how you managed to trigger this situation in the current OpenMPT release I cannot do anything about it.

Try loading a file from recent, that was on a USB stick you no longer have plugged in. No error messages result in this specific case.

Thanks, that was the missing information. Unfortunately there seems to be an inconsistency deep inside MFC regarding non-existing files depending on whether they are located on an existing or non-existing drive. I think we should be able to work around that, though.
