There is a perfect solution for this.
You have to install Total Commander Lister plugin ULister
which requires the Oracle Viewer Technology files.
All this is free but you have to create an Account on the Oracle Web site,
its free and they don't send any spam or so.

Here the download link for the TC Plugin

The link for the Oracle Outside In Technology Downloads:

You need the Viewer Technology files with the correct bitness x86 or x64 for your FC.
But you have to logon on top with your Oracle account before you can download.
Windows 11 Home x64 Version 21H2 (OS Build 22000.1042)
Everything Version 1.5.0.1321a (x64)
FreeCommander XE 2022 Build 874 64-bit donor

If you have already preview of the .dwg files in Windows Explorer then try to add the extension for .dwg in the viewer configuration ( tab "general", field "as Windows preview" ).

Thanks, horst.epp but this is what I've tried first.

Thanks Karol, this works on my home PC where I have the paid-for version which is 869 but not the XE public version which I'm using at work which is 861.

I will probably wait until the version for the public one gets updated.

FC needs to be restarted in order for this to work.
