view/edit with notepad++ not working

#1 Post by gniposoave » 2020-10-29 09:37

Hi all, I'm facing a weird issue. I'm running Win-10 Enterprise and Filezilla v3.51 (64-bit) , notepad++ v7.9 (64-bit).
After installing Filezilla 3.51, I'm not able to use view/edit files with notepad++.
I've tried to debug this, and find this:
1. I click the view/edit choice on Filezilla.
2. The file transfer to the local directory C:\Users\PC-USER\AppData\Local\Temp\fz3temp-2 starts, and I can see the file
3. Immediately after the end of the download, the file is being deleted!!! So I can't open it

The view/edit feature works fine with other programs like Windows_notepad, WordPad , or other file types having another program associated to open it.
I'm facing this issue after upgrading to 3.51 Filezilla version.
But now, even downgrading to 3.48 version doesn't solve this

Can anyone help me?
I'll appreciate very much. Thank in advance

After struggling a lot, i've found and put here the solution, perhaps it can help someone else.
The issue was caused by the conf of notepad to run always as administrator.
Fix:
Navigate to C:\Program Files \Notepad++ folder. Right mouse click the Notpad++.exe file click properties & under the compatability Tab UN-TICK run the program as administrator box.
Done :D

If I require a software starting in Admin mode, but also regularly, I create a copy of the executable, e. g. "notepad++A.exe". This copy (or hardlink) is configured to always run as Administrator. The shell keeps starting the original "notepad++.exe" and works fine.

<rant>Unbelievable that very good software like 7-Zip still doesn't auto-elevate when required...</rant over>
