#8086 closed Bug report (outdated)

Filezilla crashes on launch - displays brief flash on screen.

Reported by: John Pierpoint Owned by:
Priority: high Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: crash Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: XP SP3


Processor: Intel Core 2
Filezilla version: 3.5.3 (latest)

Problem: Filezilla crashes instantly on launch.

Filezilla was on 3.5.2 when this problem started. It had worked OK for about two months, up until two days ago. Nothing has been installed since then, and no Filezilla settings were changed.
Today, it would not start up from the desktop shortcut. There was a brief jagged flash across the screen for a fraction of a second. No disk activity. Nothing in Task Manager. No MS crash message.
Re-installed latest version 3.5.3 over the top. Worked OK once. Able to upload a file. Closed Filezilla. Tried to open it again - behaviour the same as before with brief flash on screen then nothing.
Have tried a full uninstall, restart and re-install. No better. Tried renaming the C:\Documents and Settings\{user name}\Application Data\FileZilla folder (as suggested on another ticket). No better. Can't find any existing tickets that match this behaviour. Some tickets refer to being able to pick up Filezilla using ALT+TAB, but this does not happen in this case.
Note: was re-installed with "all users" option, but Filezilla folder was found in the individual current user folder under C:\Documents and Settings\, not the all users folder.
