Hello!

I am wondering if IS provides an easy way to register files of a certain
type with my executable program (i.e. whenever a user double clicks a
...xxx file, it opens with the program). I could do it through settin
keys in the registry, but I thought there should be an automatic way...

Thanks!

Unfortunately not. InstallShield5.1 however lets you customise the process.
