View Full Version : Set file associations to a 32-bit application for Win10 x64

11-30-2015, 04:58 AM

Does anyone know exactly which registry keys etc. have to be set inside an msi to get file associations to work properly on Windows 10 Enterprise x64?

I notice that there doesn't seem to be much documentation/guidance available online regarding file associations for Windows 10 - at least setting them manually - why PS can't do this at this point in time (at least to the best of my knowledge) - I don't know.

The methodology that works for Windows 7 doesn't work - and following the guidelines here https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ee872121(v=vs.85).aspx - even allowing for the WOW6432Node variations - doesn't seem to work - at least for me.

Any ideas greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,
