My SmartFTP client continues to crash around 50 seconds after activation. System information below.

If I'm really quick, i can demonstrate that the product is working correctly up until the crash. For example, I can define a remote then shut down the client. open it again and the remote is started correctly, I can then transfer a file, navigate to another location, shut down the client. On restarting, everything comes back at the new location. All as long as i get the work done inside 50 seconds.

I've reviewed the board for similar problems but cannot find anything exactly matching. Might be similar to runtime or VM problems reported here but I get no such indication. The client window just disappears and any changes in configuration are not saved.
I've been suffering this with all 2.0 releases so have been looking for a solution for some time and starting to get ready to givge up or go back to 1.5. <_<

Hello ...

Thank you for your report. Can you reproduce this on any system or just on your particular system/configuration?

No, just the one system. I have a second system that closely mirrors the problem box (memory, cpu speed etc). It happily runs 2.0.2001.9. The only difference in system info from SmartFTP is the version of shlwapi.dll. I tracked back and found that this dll on the problem machine was not properly updated during a Windows update. I made the appropriate changes and now both systems mirror each other. Still have the problem.

I have a third system that I can test later today. The hardware, cpu etc is identical to the problem machine except it has half the memory. I'll download and add SmartFTP and report back in an hour or two.

I updated to SmartFTP yesterday paid for license, now neither my old v1 or new v2 works!
I am on Windows XP.
Both old and new versions connect to the outside server where my stuff is.
V2 shows both my local & distant server files -but does not respond to upload or download commands.
This is a bummer. I have no such problem on my MAC machine, but I need this Windows machine to work as well.
V1 does not even allow me to select files for upload. However I think I put my V2 key into it by mistake. How do I get my old V1 key so at least that one will work as it did before?

OK, I installed latest SmartFTP beta on the third machine (the one with identical hardware to problem machine). Left it up and running for several hours while other things were being done on the machine. When I shut the machine down around 2.00 am, it had been running for about seven hours whith no apparent ill effects to SmartFTP. Not a rigorous test but enough to show I do not have the 50 second shut-down problem.

Any ideas or suggestions on how to proceed?

Hello ...

I think the problem is more related to your system/configuration than SmartFTP. I would recommend you to reinstall your system.

I am having the same problem. Smartftp closes after 50 seconds, even if I try to keep activity by refreshing the server I am connecting to.

Did download above beta version but same problem. I am using an Inspiron 5100 Dell Computer running XP.

Hello ...

Please provide a movie showing the problem. You can use CamStudio (Free) to create it:

Cannot see where sending you a movie of me starting up SmartFTP and then watching it close after 50 seconds is going to help determine the problem. It is not any type of activity being done when the program is active that is causing it to shut down. If I just start the program up and do nothing after that... no activity, no mouse movement, the program still just closes. No error messages pop-up saying something went wrong... nothing. When I am working, transfering and opening files, connecting to servers, the same thing happens.

If you still think shooting a movie will help let me know and I will try to get it done as soon as I am able to do so.

We might be able to see something on the movie that causes the problem. It's a plain guess of course. Another option would be to run a remote debugger on your system but this is a more complicated process.

To limit the causes stop the Transfer Queue. Then restart the application (the Transfer Queue should be stopped after the restart) to see if it makes any change. Please post your findings.
Thank you.
If your time allows you can also test it with the latest Beta version from:
http://www.smartftp....get/SFTPNSI.exe

I have isolated the problem somewhat. I uninstalled. Then reinstalled. I then noticed everything is fine until I open a tab for my local browser. It then shuts down after about 45 or 50 seconds. If I do not open a tab for local browser, it does not shut down. If I open a tab for my server alone it also does not shut down.

Any solution?

I believe the problem is related to a shell extension which is loaded when you open a Local Browser.
A short explanation of shell extensions can be found at:

The only way we can debug the problem is with a remote debug session. Please let me know if you have time and interest to do this.
