Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version:


On Windows 10.
When I try to View/Edit a file on the server, it offers to Use system association (which is notepad++ on my machine).
However, it then gives error -- File could not be opened. No program associated with this file type.
Things work fine with FZ

I found the same issue.
Go to Edit|Settings|File Editing|File Type Associations

I have associations for php and txt. The corrupted data looks like this:

php "C:\Users\Dave\AppData\Local\Programs\Microsoft VS Code\Code.exe" %ftxt C:\Windows\system32\NOTEPAD.EXE %f

The leading blank line does not seem to be an issue.

There should be associations for php and for txt, so change %ftxt by hitting enter with the cursor between %f and txt, so the lines become:

php "C:\Users\Dave\AppData\Local\Programs\Microsoft VS Code\Code.exe" %f
txt C:\Windows\system32\NOTEPAD.EXE %f

This seems to work just fine to fix the problem, but every time a new association is added the data is reformatted, taking the new line from between and %f and the next file extension. Here is what resulted when I added the html extension.

html "C:\Program Files\Firefox Developer Edition\firefox.exe" -osint -url %fphp "C:\Users\Dave\AppData\Local\Programs\Microsoft VS Code\Code.exe" %ftxt C:\Windows\system32\NOTEPAD.EXE %f
