#4695 closed Bug report (rejected)

Extended delay starting client

Reported by: Rob Owned by:
Priority: low Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: Cc: david.antila@…
Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: XP SP3


There is an extended delay of around 1 to 2 minutes starting the client. Attaching a process monitor (logs attached) it can be seen that the process is trying to open the locale directory by traversing the hard drive. When the "locales" directory in c:\program files\filezilla is renamed to "locale" there is no delay.

There is something wrong with your system. Even if FileZilla would check a thousand directories, it wouldn't take longer than one second on a proper system.

Try formatting your disks, reinstalling Windows, FileZilla and nothing else. I'm certain it will start very fast then.

Hmmm...I experience the same problem (record is 3 min 16 sec to load) and the directory name change does nothing.

It is a bit unrealistic, don't you think, to ask the user to wipe their disk, reinstall Windows and install FileZilla?

Urge you to re-think this issue and perhaps provide a debug build so that those affected may test and give you some feedback. No doubt it is interaction-with-system related, but the recommended workaround is not workable in my view.

How is this critical? It's not a security vulnerability. It's low priority at best because it's an issue with your system only you can fix.

This is not a problem with FileZilla, your system is broken.

Try this: Format your disks, install Windows and FileZilla and nothing else. I can guarantee you a quick start.
