AutoWikiBrowser when executed via Parallels Desktop throws an exception
Open, Needs TriagePublic


Upon starting AWB, I get the following exception:

<tr><th>Message:</th><td>`Invalid URI: The hostname could not be parsed.`</td></tr>
<tr><th>Call stack:</th><td><pre>   at System.Uri.CreateThis(String uri, Boolean dontEscape, UriKind uriKind)
   at System.Uri..ctor(String uriString)
   at System.Windows.Forms.Application.get_ExecutablePath()
   at WikiFunctions.AwbDirs.MigrateDefaultSettings()
   at AutoWikiBrowser.Program.Main(String[] args)</pre></td></tr>

I used and as mentioned in the task title, I attempted to start AWB on my mac via Parallels Desktop.

This only happens when I start the .exe file from Finder. If I first turn on Windows Explorer manually, go to where AWB is stored and start it from there, everything works manually. So, I guess it's questionable whether this is a Parallels bug or an AWB bug, but filling it here anyway :).
