Association of local files with program in SecureFX

This troubles me for many years: In Windows I have associated file extensions with certain programs. SecureFX does not (always) honor such associations and even changing an association within SecureFX does not permanently save that change.

A reproducible example:

Within Windows, I have associated .css files with my preferred text editor, i.e., EmEditor, consequently double-clicking a .css file in Windows Explorer results in opening .css files with EmEditor.

However, if I open the same .css file by double-clicking in SecureFX's local window, it will be opened with Notepad. If I try to change that association in SecureFX (right clicking the .css file in SecureFX's local window > Open With > EmEditor ("Always use this program to open this type of file in SecureFX" checked) > OK > "This extension already has an association. Do you want to change it?" > Yes), that change is not saved, i.e., the next time I double-click the same file in SecureFX's local window, it will be opened with Notepad again.

This behavior does not depend on the Windows version, i.e., at least Windows 10, 8 and 7 exhibit the same problem.

Hi Kleinhev,

I was able to replicate the reported behavior, but only with .css files and EmEditor. If I made the preferred application EmEditor for .txt files, SecureFX honors that, but not if EmEditor is the preferred application for .css files.

I have submitted this behavior for investigation by the development team. Should progress be made toward a resolution, or further information be requested, I will post in this thread.

If you prefer direct e-mail notification, contact support@vandyke.com and include "Bug Report - Forum Thread #12271" in the subject line.

Hi Kleinhev,

We have a new build of SecureFX we believe fixes the issue reported where file associations are not honored when application is EmEditor.

I have also sent you a direct email.
