How to run "QuickLook" app through a user-defined command within XYplorer?

Hi,
I'd appreciate your help.
I'm trying to run QuickLook (https://github.com/QL-Win/QuickLook) as a user-defined command within XYplorer:
Here there are some directions for integration and development, with explicit mention to XYplorer: https://github.com/QL-Win/QuickLook/wik ... evelopment
I created the following XYplorer script, which run QuickLook, but there is no preview window. Instead, just a pop-up QuickLook dialog informs it is running in the background.

Code: Select all

run "C:\Apps\QuickLook\QuickLook.exe" <curitem>
