Hello Haithamsaadany, and welcome to Seven Forums.

The yellow TIP box under step 3 in the tutorial on the first page can help show you how to fix this to be able to merge the REG file afterwards.

Hello GsNp, and welcome to Seven Forums.

By default .mpq files are not associated to be opened by anything. The REG file below will restore the default associations for .mpq files by unassociating them. After merging the REG file, restart the computer to full apply.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Actually Shawn right after posting this, I found a solution myself, but much appreciate your reply. I'll keep this saved just in case I ever encounter this problem again.
