View Full Version : File Types View

I seem to be having a little bit of trouble finding the "File Types View" which is supposedly used to associate a unique file extension with a particular executable in your application. It is supposedly accessible via an "advanced" item that should appear under the component you wish to associate a file type with (in the setup design view) but I only see "static file links", "registry data" and "shortcuts" nodes under each of the components. Can anyone help me? Where can I find this "File Types View"?

The File Types view is present only in MSI-based projects. For an InstallScript project, I believe you'll need to define the file type association directly in the registry.

See, for example, Macrovision KB article Q100157 at http://support.installshield.com.
