A few thoughts.
In NoteTab Pro, go to the menu and select VIEW > OPTIONS
Select "Advanced" and under the "Application" section, make a check mark
beside "Store settings in registry".
Select "View" and under the "Window" section, choose "Show advanced
In the small box at the top, enter the extension you wish to associate with
Don't include the period at the beginning. It won't let you anyhow.
Press the "Add" button and the extension will be added to the list in the
Click "OK" when done. This SHOULD work. If not, exit NoteTab and then try.
Other options.... two programs I find very useful in manipulating file
extensions (both freeware) are:
WAssociate 3.3 from http://www.xs4all.nl/~wstudios/Associate/
and Freedom of Association 1.2 from
The first one, WAssociate takes you right into the registry links that
control the file types - the real nitty gritty. As I said, both are
freeware, so if one doesn't suit you, the other might. I use both. But try
the first option, using NoteTab itself to fix the problem. Unless you
already tried - then the other methods may be just the ticket.
