can't properly set up file associations (1.80.1)

Having just installed XnView I'm not able to get image files associated with it for my (restricted) user account.

Yes, I know the Associations dialogue and it it's easy to set file associations for the administrator account which I used to install XnView.
For other applications associations set on the admin account also affect user accounts. But here Windows file type dialogue simply doesn't show any applications associated with the image files on the user account.

I also tried to assign the user account admin rights. After that the associations also showed up on the former user account and worked flawlessly. Removing admin rights from it again showed the former behaviour.

Also removing the associations using the admin account, assigning admin rights to the user account, setting associations here and removing admin rights resulted in the known behaviour.

I can't say who's wrong here, Windows, XnView or me. So I filed this in the Bug Reports forum since the problem only shows up with XnView though I don't relly want to blame it.
Anyway, help is appreciated.

Thanks,
J├╝rgen

Do you have tried (after installing it) options/Associations?
