Can't change certain file type associations

Post by C0080900 » Sun May 05, 2013 5:10 am

I have to use right click > open with > check box to always open with to force register/associate certain file types with XnView.

However, those file types won't display in XnView even though I click them and XnView opens.

.ico, .tiff, etc won't display even after methods mentioned above.

I've tried, but to no avail.

Default programs> Set your default programs > (Program name goes here) > Choose defaults for this program.

Default programs > Associate a file type or protocol with a program

Any help here?

XnView 2.00.0, my XnView settings are stored in the .ini under the XnView installation folder.

Also tried running XnView as Administrator.

I'm unsure, I haven't tried .bmp

I noticed a strange problem/pattern, though.

When double clicking the .ico images, XnView opens, but doesn't display the images. However, if I drag n drop .ico images into XnView, XnView displays the .ico images.

I recorded my problem with Problem Steps Recorder. It's an .mht file. Several browsers that can open .mht files: Maxthon, Internet Explorer 7/8/9/10/etc, Opera, Firefox + Mozilla Archive Format

Here is a link to the .mht file that was created with Problem Steps Recorder so that you may further investigate and get a better idea of my issue.

No, .ico isn't listed in that list no matter how many times I check.

Yes.

When I double click .jpeg images, XnView shows nothing.

When I drag .jpeg images to XnView, XnView displays the images.

And yes, I want to change the extensions in the list to open with XnView.

Nevermind, installing XnView 2.03 appears to have fixed my issue.
