#7442 closed Bug report (fixed)

Error reading attributes of filezilla.xml

Reported by: Peter Miller Owned by: PM
Priority: high Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: xml reading attribute error Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: Windows 7 Ultimate, latest version


Starting filezilla.exe either directly or with shortcut generates this error message:

Error reading Attributes
For this session the default settings will be used. Any changes to the settings will not be saved.

As a result, the settings are dropped, and any settings entered cannot be saved. This bug appeared suddenly, without any cause that I can identify. It could not be corrected by uninstalling and re-installing, and it could not be corrected by downloading a new setup file and re-installing that. I will answer any questions that would help de-bug this. Thanks for helping.

Following is a copy of the filezilla.xml file:

Unfortunately the file is corrupted. You can salvage the data that is remaining by removing the last line and writing </Settings></FileZilla3> at the end.
