I am trying to associate some extensions with some different programs. For example, I want to associate ".bmp" with the "mspaint.exe" program, when it is currently associated with "Windows Picture Viewer" program.
I know how to associate the extensions with the UI, but I want to add this to a batch file script. So, I've been looking into the "assoc" and "ftype" commands. This would seem (based on my google searches) that this is exactly what I want. HOWEVER, this process does not seem to have any effect on at least the .bmp extension. I also tried associating a .txt with notepad++ instead of notepad, and that worked just fine. So...there seems to be something different about images or something I'm just not thinking of.
Can someone please help me out with this problem. Thanks.
