#1349 closed Bug report

Error when attempting to drag and drop to desktop.

Reported by: jfichtner Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: Cc: jfichtner, Tim Kosse
Component version: Operating system type:
Operating system version:


After upgrading to version, I connected to a server and attempted to drag and drop a small text file from the server pane to my desktop and got the following error message: "Could not determine the target of the Drag&Drop operation. Either the shell extension is not installed properly or you didn't drop the files into an Explorer window." A folder was created on my desktop with the name "fz3-12003270676720".

Since I have performed this operation in the past without a problem (not sure of my previous version, but it was a very recent one) I assume that this is a bug. No trace messages appeared in the message window during this operation.

I am running Windows XP Pro SP2.

Does a system reboot fix this problem?
