20902"Open With" not working
- Feb 2, 2009Hi All,
NoteTab Std 5.7b/fv (full version) on Windows XP Pro SP3
I'm not sure whether this is something to do with NoteTab Std or
whether it's a coincidence that NoteTab is the only application with
which I've seen this issue:
I want to open a Linux .conf file that I've FTP'd over to my Windows
machine. I have no default application for .conf files, so I have to
right-click the file and choose Open. Windows responds with a dialog
box that lets me choose to select the program from a list.
Doing this returns a dialog box with a list of programs. Notepad is
recommended and NoteTab does not appear in the list of "Other
Programs". I can browse to and select
C:\Program Files\NoteTab Std 5\NoteTab.exe
but when I click OK in the file browser to return to the program list,
NoteTab is still not available and so I can't open the file with
The only ways I can open these files in NoteTab is from within
NoteTab, replacing Notepad with NoteTab and selecting Notepad as the
application in which to open the file, or opening NoteTab and dragging
files from Windows Explorer to NoteTab.
Can anyone shed light on what's going wrong?
