Windows 7: File Extension Type - Unassociate

02 Jan 2013   #20

Window 7 ultimate 32 bit (french) SP1

That could be, it is why I said that it was French, but of all the softwares, batchfiles, registry keys and so I tryed in all theses years, (as Microsoft architecture stay the very same beneath the language interface) something like that never occured me. And I use many softare from many countries, english, german, and so.

Also, the error message tell something quite different.

Are you positive it is that (language problem), or is it just an idea ?

It was just an idea since that error indicates that the program doesn't think you are running Windows 7 or Vista. It may just be looking for the OS name in English, but since it's in French it doesn't match and therefore doesn't think you have W7 or Vista installed.

But as i installed so many different countries softwares of all kind, without never an annoyance about this langage thing, I wonder.
