Editor Configuration using old editor even after editor change

Reported by: bramoin Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: Editor, Configuration, can not open file Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: Vista Home Premium SP1


I have FileZilla running, the latest released version I am using Vista Home Premium Service Pack1. When i try to open a file in the local directory, it says "The file <filename> can not be opened: The associated program <fullpath of program and filename> could not be found.". I used "Edit->Settings" and changed the "File Editing" to use "Use Custom Editor" and entered a different editor path (it was pointing to an older version of editplus and i changed to WebExpression). but when i try to open the file, it gives me the same message with the name of the previous editor. I played with various settings on the "File Editing" configuration window but it has no effect, i get the same error regardless. I also cleared the private data and this had no effect. i also have restarted the application and this also did not have any effect. I also changed the file association for the given file, at the explorer level this is changed because the icon is different now which is also right icon image for the file. but the program still does not open and gives the same error. When i right click on the file, Edit is grayed out but "Open" is not grayed out and that is what i am selecting to open the file. i also changed the editor from WebExpression to edit++ and still getting the same thing.

It is giving the same error regardless of the directory or file is select.

"Open" always uses the system file associations, it cannot be overridden from within FileZilla.
