#5551 closed Bug report (fixed)

filetype associations being ignored

Reported by: Tim Schlueter Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: notepad file filetype Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: 7

Description

I have .log files assigned to be opened with Notepad++, but the latest versions of FileZilla open all .log files in plain Notepad.

I am running windows 7 professional and it is worth noting that from what I can tell, this was introduced in the 3.3.4 series of releases. In FileZilla version 3.3.3 and earlier .log files opened as expected in Notepad++.

I have also tried to manually set the filetype association in FileZilla's settings. Also, I have .bat files set to be opened in Notepad++ (in FileZilla's settings) instead of run but in the 3.3.4 series it is run when I select to open it.

Make sure your system filetype associations are correct. Make sure .log files are associated with Notepad++ in Windows' Control Panel under Programs -> Default Programs.

.log is currently and has been associated with Notepad++ (also in Windows 7, there is no 'Default Programs' option in the Programs and Features control panel item). But if I double-click a .log file, or click to open or edit a .log or other file in FileZilla 3.3.3, it opens in Notepad++ (without manually setting it to open in Notepad++ via the FileZilla settings) but not in 3.3.4

There definitely is. See the attached screenshots.

Replying to codesquid:

There definitely is. See the attached screenshots.

well, ok I don't use the category view so that explains that, but regardless it's still associated with Notepad++

Can you please try the following?

Open Explorer, right-click a file of the that type and select Open with -> Chose default program. Then select Notepad++ and make sure "Always use..." is checked. Then (re)start FileZilla. Did the change anything?

ok, well for whatever reason that fixed the issue with 3.3.4.1 and the .log files. However I have .bat and .html files set in the FileZilla settings to be opened with Notepad++, and those are still opening with their default program (running it as a batch file or opening with firefox instead of with Notepad++)

here are the FileZilla filetype settings (also stopped working in 3.3.4)

bat "C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\notepad++.exe"
html "C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\notepad++.exe"

In FileZilla, are you using "Open" or "Edit"? Only "Edit" makes use of custom associations, "Open" always uses the system association.

Ok wow, I feel really stupid now. That works although I'm a little confused about the whole .log thing, but it's all fixed now.
