#5225 new Bug report

DDE execute request failed..

Reported by: Brett Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: DDE execute synchronous Cc: tphelps@…
Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: 7


DDE Execute request failed: A request for a synchronous execute transaction has timed out.

This happens when I right click on and then click Open a Corel Draw file in Filezilla. It automatically opens another instance of Corel Draw. I end up with multiple Corel Draw programs open, it wastes a lot of time and memory.

I see a few people have mentioned this before.. do you guys consider it a low priority..

I'm getting the same error in Windows 7. The registered application is Visual Studio.

  1. Downloads the file to the temp directory
  2. Opens the file in my already open copy of Visual Studio
  3. Opens another copy of Visual Studio
  4. Shows me the DDE execute failed dialog shown above.

This does not occur if you select "Always use default editor" in settings. Then it uses notepad.

This is still a problem in the latest version of FileZilla ( In my case, I am trying to view a .sql file, which opens in Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio. If there is currently no instance of Management Studio running, then it opens 2 instances. The first instance loads the file. The second instance does not, and then the aforementioned dialog is displayed. If there is a currently at least one instance of Management Studio running, then the file will be opened in one of the instances, and a new instance will be launched followed by the aforementioned dialog being displayed.

Correction to my previous entry. The additional instance of Management Studio that is launched DOES have the file opened. So for example, if I perform this operation on 5 different .sql files, I will have six instances of Management Studio running. One instance will have all 5 files opened, and the other five will each have one of the files opened.
