upgrading from to 3.2.5 failure

Reported by: cedesguin Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: Cc: cedesguin@…
Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: XP Pro SP3


Just (tried to) upgrade from to 3.2.5

  1. "inside" upgrade failed while downloading ("Timer creation failed")
  2. After normal download from the website and installation of 3.2.5 over (keeping existing setup), any attempt to connect crashes not only Filezilla, but Windows as well. Reboot.
  3. ZoneAlarm firewall did NOT ask for Filezilla re-authorization, as it usually does after upgrade.
  4. After downgrade to everything is OK again.
  5. If it ain't broken don't fix it...

Is it just me?

The timer creation issue is a known problem that has been fixed in 3.2.5 and is also mentioned in the list of changes from to 3.2.5:

  • Fix "Timer creation failed" message boxes on update download dialog. Actual update download was not affected, only display of the progress bar.

A normal program cannot crash a modern operating system, not even Windows. If your whole system crashes there's something else horribly broken. I'd recommend wiping your disks and installing a fresh system, not from recovery CDs but from a real install disk.
