When I followed the steps you describe (Folder Options etc.), I found
that there was no '.conf' or 'conf' in the list to scroll to (so I would
have had to create it).
Interestingly, under the following key:
there is my list with the programs I chose to open the .conf file!
So the .conf stuff is indeed created and listed somewhere.
I did not, however, choose to associate .conf with any of the listed
programs (removed the tick from "Always uses the selected program ...").
I wonder how this all works.
But this is becoming rather off topic.
