Windows 7: Default file association for .ape files

17 Jul 2013   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium (x64) Service Pack 1 (build 7601
Default file association for .ape files

If I double-click a .ape file in the windows file manager, windows pops up a box that says "choose the program you want to use to open this file". Two choices are there: foobar2000 and imgburn. I select foobar2000 and I click "always use the selected program to open this kind of file" and I click OK.

The next time I double-click a .ape file, that same box pops up. (How can this be?)

In imgburn, .ape files are not associated with imgburn. In foobar2000, .ape files are associated with foobar2000.

I have gone through the steps detailed here:
but that did not resolve the problem.

In Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Default Programs\Set Default Programs, foobar2000 has .ape files associated with it. imgburn has nothing associated with it. Yet I have to choose one of these programs every time I select a .ape file in the file manager.

Any ideas on how this can be fixed?
