Topic "Alert although file was opened successfully"

Author Message


Hey there.
If I (rightlick->)open a remote image with the Windows default image viewer, the image viewer appears, the image is shown, but winscp gives me an alert, that it wasnt able to "determine application that was started to open the file". This is a bit annoying if you want to have a look at many remote images, but don't want to download all.. An option to disable this message (like "Never show this again"-checkbox) would be very nice in the future.

I believe that the message gives explanation of the possible solution and a reason why it is an error (and hence it should not be possible to suppress it).
