#774 closed Bug report

Messaging wrong on open file issue (2.2.9)

In the Client (2.2.9, 2.16a...) you cannot transfer a
file when it is being edited in another program in
Windows XP SP2. This is probably true for all windows
versions. SmartFTP gives the correct error message,
something like "cannot transfer file because it is open
in another program". Filezilla says "too many retries"
and does not give a clue as to why you cannot transfer
a file.

For example: Open Office is open and editing an HTML
document. You open Filezilla Client 2.2.9 and attempt
to transfer the file. It appears to be a network
issue, or a transfer issue, when in fact it is caused
by Filezilla choking because Open Office has the file open.

I am not sure if this is a limitiation in the Windows
platform, but the messaging should be clear because it
seems like an issue which might be resolved by passive
transfer, but it is not.
