Filezilla version:

It's great to see the 'Edit' option appear on the right-click menu, as it was with Filezilla v2.

However I am having a problem opening PHP and ASP files on my Vista system. Both of these file types are associated with Textpad on my system, and if I double-click them in Explorer they load up in Textpad. But if I right-click a local file in Filezilla and select Edit, I get errors.

ASP files produce this error:

PHP files produce this error:

Is the option to inherit system file associations enabled?

comment:2 by andrewace, 16 years ago

Yes. See screenshot at

If I set Textpad as the default and choose 'Always use default editor' it loads OK, but I get the error if I ask it to use the system's default.

That site isn't working. You can attach screenshots directly to this tracker item.

Works fine. Copy and paste the URL into a browser window.

Please attach the screenshots for future reference. External sites are short lived, the tracker items last forever.
