XnViewMP and silent association

Post by KiboOst » Tue Mar 13, 2018 4:22 pm

Hi,

I would like to copy the zip (portable) version of XnViewMP on another computer and silently associate image files with it.

I see there is the Associate files with XnViewMP.exe but it doesn't seem to take arguments to run silently like for example:
Associate files with XnViewMP.exe -register -all

Is there some common reg file or other way to do it with MP ?

Thks

you can export the registry HKLM\software\XnViewMP, and import it on the other PC

Thanks, I will try that.

So without anything in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT all jpg, tiff etc files will open with xnviewmp ? On Win7 x64 ?
