#4385 closed Bug report (worksforme)

Can´t drag any file from my remote folder to my computer

Reported by: Santiago Villafuerte Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: desktop drag drop Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: Windows XP SP3


I just installed Filezilla client

I installed no additional icons, no language files, shell extension activated, desktop icon activated.

Whenever I drag and drop any file from a remote folder into my Desktop it shows this error:

"Could not determine the target of the Drag&Drop operation. Either the shell extension is not installed properly or you didn't drop the files into an Explorer window."

And then it creates an empty folder called "fz3-12385240204210". The folder name varies.

Both options are wrong, I did install the shell extension and I'm dropping the files into the Desktop which is an Explorer window. I also tried to drop the files into another folder and it didn't work.

Well, after turning off and then turning on Windows, it is working as it should. Now I drag the files and they are copied normally.

The Filezilla installer should ask the user if he wants to reboot in order to apply changes, specially the shell extension ones.

Reboot is not needed in most cases, only a few users need a reboot.
