#4241 closed Bug report (fixed)

DDE association not working

Reported by: sviergn Owned by:
Priority: high Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: word, excel, office, file association, broken Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: XP


Attempts to do "View/Edit" on a remote file that happens to be a Microsoft Office file (e.g., Word .doc, Excel .xls) fail with the new version of Filezilla (3.2.1). They worked just fine in 3.2.0. The error message you see is:

The file "" cannot be opened:
The associated program (WX_DDE #c:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\Excel.exe" /e#Excel#system#[open("")]) could not be found.

Since I use this program to remotely edit Office files on outside computers, this is a blocker for me, but I have set the priority to "high".

Replying to codesquid:

Will be fixed in the next version.

So what do we do until the next version comes out? The program is essentially unusable for us since this is what we use to edit Office files remotely! How soon will this fix be available?
