Re: Cannot remove temporary directory ''. (Version 5.1x - 5.13.3 (Build 8565)

The next version of WinSCP will automatically restore the editor options defaults when changing editor command from Notepad to 3rd party editor

Cannot remove temporary directory ''. (Version 5.1x - 5.13.3 (Build 8565)


the error "cannot remove temporary directory '<empty>' " comes with W10 Build 1709 AND Build 1803
WinSCP Versions: 5.11.3, 5.13.2 and 5.13.3
Used external editors: notepad++ 7.5.4 and notepad++ 7.5.8 (x64)
This error doesn't occur with Textpad 5.4.2

UPS, OK, I think I found it, but I leave this post here for others:

In the extrernal editor settings, there is an option "External editor opens each file in separate windows (process)" - this option was marked and I get the error above.
Now I remove this option and it looks good.
