#3427 closed Bug report

Unable to edit/open dot files (Windows)

I am using FileZilla on Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit.

When I see a file in the local directory listing I can open that file using right mouse click on that file and select Open or Edit from the menu. This does however not work with .htaccess files. The error message:

Opening failed
The file 'c:\download\temp\.htaccess' could not be opened: No program has been associated on your system with this file type.

But if I doubleclick a .htaccess file in the Windows Explorer, UltraEdit is opened. Also, the .htaccess file has an UltraEdit icon next to it in the FileZilla local file listing.

When I rename the file to 1.htaccess, I can open and edit the file from FileZilla without any problems.

Dots at the beginning of a filename are not extension separators. As such .htaccess is extensionless.

Starting with 3.0.8, the default editor set in the FileZilla options will be used to open extensionless files.
