Filezilla can't open .php files in External Editor (Dreamweaver)?

I recently installed FileZilla on my Windows 7 OS (had previously used it without issue on a Mac) and I am getting the following message when trying to edit .php files with Dreamweaver as an external editor (I am using the latest version of Filezilla (188.8.131.52) and Dreamweaver CS5.5):
The file 'index.php' cannot be opened:
The associated program (WX_DDE#"F:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Dreamweaver CS5.5\Dreamweaver.exe", "index.php"##System#) could not be found.
Please check your filetype associations
(This occurs with ANY .php file not just the index.php that is in the above message)
I did see an unsolved ticket that was opened 3 years ago about the same type of issue.
The only way that I was able to get around this was to do the following:
Go to Edit -> Settings -> Filetype Associations, manually add the following line and click ok:
php "F:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Dreamweaver CS5.5\Dreamweaver.exe" -open
I believe this appears to be some sort of bug because as mentioned prior when working with Filezilla on a Mac system (using Dreamweaver CS4) it all works fine and doesn't require this workaround.
