Yep, it will be safe to delete the php_auto_file key.

Did you also have any php keys (not php3) towards the top with the other listed file extensions?

Hello Ide, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I have updated the CMD download. Please try it again, and be sure to restart the computer afterwards.

If it still does not help, then use the program in the tutorial below to unassociate the CMD file extension.

Hope this helps,

Gadget Problem

Hi, I have an annoying problem:

When I download a gadget it won't open it with the right software I think it might be a registry problem.

Can I fix it with those registry if yes which one should I try.

Thanks.

Hello Unity, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Did you install the gadget first and use the usual method to add it to the desktop?

Hello Hill,

Each file extension has to many unique locations to have a manual section for them.

You can download the .reg file, and change the file extension from .reg to .txt. You can then open the .txt file to see and make the changes manually in the registy if you like, but I would not recommend this unless you are familiar with using regedit. One mistake can give you results that you would not want, or toast Windows 7.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
