thanks for the quick answer shawn.
and no, i only got the word viewer installed.
in this viewer there are really no options at all. i cant set any file assosiations in this program itself.
tried to assosiate .doc files with emeditor in the emeditor program itself, but nothing happens
the fileicon of the .doc files shows me the windows explorer icon...
perhaps i didn't explain it too clear, but as said in my first post: since i assosiated the .DOC and .DOCX filytypes
in "Associate a file type or protocol with a program" in the DEFAULT PROGRAMS section, with explorer.exe .doc and .docx filytypes don't show up anymore
in the list of filetypes
can't assosiate these 2 filetyps with no program at all anymore
i need a registry workaround, i guess ??
proberbly filetypes assosiated with explorer.exe, will get system protected and don't show up anymore
The dialog "Always use the selected program...." in the OPEN WITH menue, is also grey, i can open up the file with right click, open with.... but i want it to be saved forever ... the thing is, when i now click on a .doc file, the mouse cursor is flashing because the system is opening up 10 or more explorers in a second till the computer crahes or i shut down the computer immidiatly. the Process list in Task manager shows me an uncountable list of explorers... i hope i explained my problem now better than before, where in the registry i can change the explorer linked files ?? i have to delete .doc files from there i guess [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.doc\ ----> in here there is no explorer.exe , in no subcategory eighter wordviewer is linked correctly, but doesn't work ???? sorry for my english but it's too early for me today please help ! thx in advance,
