Windows 7: Can't set Opera 10.10 as standard program

Can't set Opera 10.10 as standard program

Hi everybody.

I have a problem setting Opera as the standard program for html, htm, http and so on. When I point Windows to the opera.exe in the control panel and press 'OK' it won't put Opera into the group of selectable programs (does that description make sense?).

I had Opera working perfectly for a while put then did a parallel installation of the new Opera 10.50 beta which screwed things up (Opera 10.50 is awesome though). I realize the beta screwing things up was not a Windows problem but I'd just like to set things back to the way it was before. I have uninstalled the beta by now but now can't set Opera 10.10 as the standard program anymore.

Thanks for the help.

You may find that a reinstallation of Opera might take care of the issue.

Good luck!
