      Description

      Using a modal native dialog on Windows to open a read-only file does not work. It will open a dialog saying: “This file is set to read-only. Try again with a different file name.” Code below can be used to reproduce the problem (try opening a read-only file):

      QFileDialog dlg(this);
      dlg.setOption(QFileDialog::DontUseNativeDialog, false);
      dlg.setAcceptMode(QFileDialog::AcceptOpen);
      QStringList fileNames;
      if (dlg.exec())
          fileNames = dlg.selectedFiles();
      

      It’s possible to open the read-only file with the Qt dialog. Also the static function, QFileDialog::getOpenFileName() is able to open the read-only file.
