      Description

      QFile::size() and QFileInfo::size() both return the size of the link's target and not of the .lnk file itself.

      QFile::open() does however open the .lnk file.

      The attatched sample app shows the problem:

      Output:

      path : "C:/Users/Kim/Desktop/wat.exe.lnk"
      symlink: true
      target : "C:/wat.exe"
      QFileInfo.size : 1018368 // this is wrong
      stat.st_size : 716
      QFile.readall.size: 716
      QFile.size : 1018368 // this is wrong

      path : "C:/wat.exe"
      symlink: false
      target : ""
      QFileInfo.size : 1018368
      stat.st_size : 1018368
      QFile.readall.size: 1018368
      QFile.size : 1018368
