    Hello Weiming, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    You should be able to right click on the file, to use Open with like in the tutorial below to either select the program or browse to and select the program's .exe file to have it open with the program by default afterwards.

    Open With - Change Default Program

    Hope this helps, :)

    Hi,
    thank you very much for the quick reply, I tried that, but the problem is my windows can not recognize that type of file, and I also checked online what is the reason i cannot open the .file file, suggested reason is some registry problem, I used the software "RegCure" to fix my system, but still I cannot open it right. I tried using Notepad to open it, it was opened, but the problem is my other software which will try to open that file can not open it anymore, so i want to change it back to .file format, but seems I can never changed it back, because when I use "open with", I checked apply to all type of file. even i downloaded the new file, the default open method is Notepad now, which my other software cannot recognize....

    Please don't use registry cleaning programs. They often do more damage.

    What program is this for?

    You should also be able to do a system restore using a restore point dated before your changed the association to have it go back to using what it was using on the date of the restore point.

    Thank you for the valuable suggestions, I guess system restore is my last choice,
    the program is some sequencing analyses program...

    No worries. A system restore is not so bad since it's not a complete factory restore.

    Please let us know how it went.

    Sir Brinks where are you?


    i'm just wondering if you can come up with a "one download" that will have all these files listed here so one can use it as a sort of maintenance tool....if it's not too much to ask.

    and yes, if i can throw this in as well. anytime i do an sfc/scannow i always end up with this "iassdo.dll.mui" problem and i'm wondering why the hell that is. now mind you, the system is functioning perfectly, no noticeable problems.

    but this is what i always get in the log file:

    CSI 000002cc [SR] Could not reproject corrupted file [ml:60{30},l:58{29}]"\??\C:\Windows\SysWOW64\en-US"\[l:28{14}]"iassdo.dll.mui"; source file in store is also corrupted

    and then somewhere down the line i see this:

    CSI 00000314 [SR] Verify complete
    CSI 00000315 [SR] Repairing 1 components
    CSI 00000317 Hashes for file member \SystemRoot\WinSxS\x86_microsoft-windows-n..ce_iassdo.resources_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_en-us_e86c80b89a3f77b7\iassdo.dll.mui do not match actual file [l:28{14}]"iassdo.dll.mui" :
    CSI 00000325 [SR] Verify and Repair Transaction completed. All files and registry keys listed in this transaction have been successfully repaired

    question is, does it really get repaired? if so why does it always show up like this?

    Hello Sandpd,

    If you like, there's already a ZIP download in the blue note box available that contains all the .reg files for each file extension. :)

    The other issue would be better to post in a new thread though since it's off topic of this tutorial.
