Error with Filetype associations - Associated program not found

Reported by: Glenn Gundermann Owned by:

Keywords: Associated program not found Cc:
Component version: 3.65.0 Operating system type:
Operating system version: Windows 11 Pro


When I try to set an Active mode IP address, I get an error message saying "Associated program not found".

When I check Filetype associations, I see the following:

txt "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.WindowsNotepad_11.2305.18.0_x648wekyb3d8bbwe\Notepad\Notepad.exe" %f

If I change it to this, everything works:

txt "C:\Windows\Notepad.exe" %f

Does this imply the installer has a bug?

The issue is Microsoft. They needlessly keep changing associations and use changing opaque random identifiers in paths.

Since FileZilla is dealing with remote, potentially untrusted files, stable associations are important, you never want to accidentally open a remote file with the wrong program.
