FileZilla Closes Abruptly, If not updated

Operating system version: XP


I am Using Windows XP SP3 & my FileZilla Client Version is 3.8.0.

Today I opened my Filezilla to access my FTP Site & received an update for version 3.8.1, and I clicked 'Install New Version'

The FileZilla got closed abruplty, i lost my FTP Connection and instead it showed a dialog-box saying 'Unsupported operating system Filezilla requires atleast Windows Vista and may not work correctly on your system. Do you really want to continue with the installation?' I pressed 'No', and found that FileZilla was still Closed.

I understand that my OS(Windows XP) is not supported by the update, but Filezilla should not close abruptly, irrespective of whether I chose to Update it or not Update it.

I do not get the bug. FileZilla asked if you agree to update. You accepted. It then detected that your operating system is not supported. It asked if it should continue. You declined.

Windows keeps DLL files open if they are used. And files opened cannot be deleted or replaced. So if FileZilla is running, it cannot be updated.
