View Full Version : File Association

In my install I have an association for a particular file extension with the program being installed. When the install is completed the association is created but it seems incomplete in that it doesn't pass the pathname of the file to the program. When I use control panels/Folder Options/File Types (Windows XP Pro) to check the assocation it is simply shown as :-
"C:\Program Files\myApp\AppName.exe"
whereas it should say:-
"C:\Program Files\myApp\AppName.exe" %1

Is there a way to overcome this?

Thanks
Ian

What are the settings of the file extension in File Extensions view?

TsungH,
Thank you for your reply. I must have looked at that field a dozen times but as soon as I saw your replied I looked again and found the arguments field!
All Ok now.
