1.0.0.1 Assoc - New File entry in context menu not showing

Post by bitz4 » Thu Aug 15, 2013 10:44 am

The associator creates XnViewMP.ext types but doesn't add default names to them, so (Default) is (value not set). If BMP gets associated with XnView, that XnViewMP.bmp will have to be named something, like Bitmap image, in order for the context menu entry to show up, assuming ShellNew is already there in HCR\.bmp. If it remains to (value not set), the menu entry just doesn't show.

Code: Select all

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.bmp]
@="XnViewMP.bmp" <- new value

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.bmp\ShellNew] <- old entry
"NullFile"=""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\XnViewMP.bmp]
@="Bitmap image" <- missing name, this is what will show up in the context menu, under New section.
