View Full Version : IS 11 Pro: Registering file types

11-21-2005, 06:16 PM
After perusing the help and searching here, I have yet to figure out how to register file types (filename.ext) to open with a specific application. Can someone point me to where this is documented?

Thanks in advance for your help.

If this is a Windows Installer (MSI) project, you can define the key file EXE of a component to be the "extension server", the application that launches files with your extension. You can set this up in your component's Advanced Settings group.

For InstallScript, you would just write the file-extension information directly to the registry.
