#3671 closed Bug report

View/Edit on remote site file causes error

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


Error "DDE execute request failed: a request for a synchronous execute transaction has timed out." when I right click a file in the remote site window and select "View/Edit". Screenshot of error dialog attached.

My editor is Textpad 5.2.0 32-bit on Windows XP Professional. Textpad is installed in its default location.

The file still loads in textpad, I can edit it, and I can save it, and it will successfully upload the changes back to the remote site prompting appropriately whether I should replace the existing file. So the View/Edit still works fine with a minor interruption from this alert.

So, in priority terms, I'd classify this as low priority with a successful workaround in place. However, it's a darn annoying error which steals focus and requires me to click Ok before proceeding to the task at hand. Do with that what you will, and good luck!

Check your system's filetype associations. There seems to be a faulty DDE entry.
