Filetype Associations Error on Transfer

Reported by: lyster Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: Filetype Associations Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: Vista


Upon installation of update 3.2.1 the file associations with MS word and MS excel documents was lost. Pdf's are ok.
When I try and open the doc's from the transfer window using the right click function (open) FileZilla gives an error saying the file could not be opened due to the associated program not being found. It goes on to say 'Please check your filetype associations'.
The files are certainly there and can be opened normally from and explorer window.
This only happened with the recent update.

Replying to codesquid:

What exactly does the error message say?

Several others are seeing this same problem. In my case (Windows XP) the error says:

The file 'C:\temp\website\bulletin\bulletin.htm' cannot be opened:
The associated program (WX_DDE#"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -nohome#IEXplore#WWW_OpenURL#"file://C:\temp\website\bulletin\bulletin.htm",,-1) could not be found.
Please check your filetype associations.

I can open/edit just fine in Windows explorer where it fires up MSWord.
