Hi All,

I have a large number of file extentions which I need to associate with my own exe's and also Windows programs like notepad etc..

Is there an "MSI way" of doing this without using installscript?

I've had a look at the File Types view under component\advance settings and can't make much sense of that :o

Thanks
Steve

For your own EXE, you should keep in mind that an "extension server" must be the key file of its component; for an existing EXE, you'll probably need to write the extension information directly to the registry...

Thanks for the reply, I have used installscript do it.

Cheers
