            Bug ID: 322117
           Summary: "Open in File Manager/Terminal" not working (on
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: digikam
           Version: 3.1.0
          Platform: MS Windows
                OS: MS Windows
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: Albums GUI
          Assignee: digikam-devel at kde.org
          Reporter: ricspam at mpc.com.br

When "My Albums" are displayed on the left sidebar, I can right-click an album
name and see the options "Open in File Manager" and "Open in Terminal".
Unfortunately, none of them are working on my system (Windows 7 64-bit).

When I select "Open in File Manager" the system opens a dialog to choose the
program to open the folder. Even if I choose a program (e.g., Windows
Explorer), my choice is not saved, so I have to select the program every time I
select this option.

When I select "Open in Terminal", nothing seems to happen.

A possible solution to this would be to allow the user to choose the program(s)
for each option, in the digiKam preferences. For instance, I could choose 
[C:\Windows\explorer.exe] as file manager, and [C:\Windows\SysWOW64\cmd.exe] as
the terminal. Parameter expansion would be necessary to allow passing extra
parameters to the programs - for example, the terminal program parameter could
be something like ["C:\Windows\SysWOW64\cmd.exe" /k "cd %s"].

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Right-click an album in digiKam
2. Select "Open in File Manager" or "Open in Terminal"

Actual Results:  
In "Open in File Manager", Windows always ask me to choose an application to
open the folder.
In "Open in Terminal", nothing happens.

Expected Results:  
With In "Open in File Manager": see the album folder being open in Windows
Explorer (the default file manager in Windows).
With "Open in Terminal": see a command prompt (the default terminal in Windows)
open with the album folder as the current directory.

Windows 7 64-bit.
