Windows 7: File Association keeps Dropping for Karaoke files !

Windows 7 Build 7600|16384- 64bit

That works. But, if you then assocaite a "program" with zip files (a program, aside from winzip or winrar) it will revert back to explorer after a reboot. There's somethign going on with the registry that is "resetting' this.

If someone can show me how to associate a zip file with "any" program, where Win 7 will remember the newly assocaited app. after a couple of reboot's, I'm all ears. that's my dilema


Well if it was application independent, Winzip nor Winrar would keep the .zip association which you say they do. Sounds like Karafun is just not supported for Windows 7.

I had the same problem with Karafun every time I clicked on a .cdg file in windows explorer I had to re do the file association I solved it by making the file association in Karafun Player "options" just tick the box to associate Karafun Player with .cdg files or just tick them all to associate all Karaoke files with Karafun Player and now it works every time in windows explorer

What I did was I unzipped all Karaoke files into their containing folder.
each .zip file gives you two files per song one .cdg file and one MP3
You simply associate the cdg file with Karafun in Karafun options and that's it done.
All you do is click the cdg file in windows explorer and it opens in Karafun and plays !

How do I change a file's file type (not only file association)?
I need to change a zip file to an epub file. I have heard this can be done, but when I add the .epub after the file name, I notice the file is still actually zip type file when I right click properties. This is causing a problem when I try to open it in in different ebook reader programs. I...
