File associations in Windows x64 not working?

Post by jgutierrez » Sun Dec 19, 2010 10:22 am

I have noticed that with latest 0.32, file associations are not working on any on my 2 Windows 7 x64 boxes.
I thought it were not implemented yet in MP, but seems that under XP x86 they work.
Will this be fixed in the regular Win32 build, or will we need to wait for the x64 native version?

I tried to associate with Tools -> Options -> Browser -> File list and selected Open with XnView for the images category.
Did I do something wrong? Should file associations work, the same as in regular XnView do?

I noticed that in non MP, associations are available under Integration -> File Associations that is not yet available on MP, so I guess that is the explanation of them not working, the feature is not yet ported to MP!
