OK, I just saw that QMC2 doesn't set the working directory for the actual "-verifysoftlist" process, so that might cause it to "not see" certain entries... however, the ROM path should be enough, and I don't see why/how that's different than with non-CHD software entries.

EDIT: SVN r4893 has a fix for this... could you please check if it makes any difference (it can only make a difference when the emulator's working directory has even been set, though)?

@Anna: an option to switch back to using "native file dialogs" has just been added (SVN r4894). See GUI tab... note that it's not generally recommended, though, so its default is "false".

Thanks for testing this, Kaylee smile! So we're (hopefully) on the right track now...

From what I know, it broke sometime between approx. r22920 and r22983, judging from my clean daily builds. Think this may help, then again may not.

Sadly no progress and i have a working directory set (in Emulator>Files/Directory). But if -verifysoftware is broken, that might be the problem so i'll test again when it'll be fixed.

Yeah, we'd have to wait for -verifysoftlist to be fixed...
