Hi, i'm having problems loading settings with QSettings on a windows machine.
I have a symlink file in the Project/debug folder that points to another file in another folder (writable and readable) when I try to read some setting from that file it behave like the file doesn't exists, when I try to write some settings on that link it overwrites the entire file deleting all the settings in it.
The link file is a symlink, not a normal shortcut (that doesn't work either, the same behavior is triggered) is created with the windows tool mklink using the command:
mklink test.ini "D:\usr\test.ini"
even if the setting "bb=false" is originally in the file it disappear and this line has a null output in the console:
P.S: this behavior is not triggered with a file that is not a link or a simlink, the same code with "test.ini" as a normal file works fine
