Hi! everybody on this forum! I need my target file extension to be "wfx64" wich is 5 characters long but the IDE only permits (as I could see) 3 characters long. The problem rises when I need to debug my dll wich is attached to another application (Total Commander file manager from Ghisler) the debugger itself can´t do it because it´s expecting a 3 char long file extension. When I type on the "Target file extension" option "wfx64", internally the IDE replaces it with "dll" like this "myfilename.wfx64.dll" observe how a "dll" was appended to my "wfx64". As Total Commander will only load "wfx64" ending file extensions mine will never be loaded so I can´t debug my plugin.

Then why not simply rename the executable file after compiling is
finished? You can do that with a Post Build script, for instance. Let
the IDE name the file however it wants, then you rename it to what you
want afterwards.
