I always thought SCR files were screensavers, so they don't need to be associated.

SCRs ARE screen savers but in the process of transfering some over to my server I could not click on theme and get them to "open"... They would open in notepad and try to print 30 some odd pages of garbled garbly gook...

The files were associated to AutoCad... Did some reasearch and SCRs are used for others things...

It's trivial but it bothers me...

If you're not actively using the SCR association in autocad (double clicking on these files to open them in autocad), open windows explorer, go to tools> folder optoins> file types, find the SCR association and delete it.

AutoCad might reassociate everytime it's launched (might not) so you'll need to find it's association properties within the program and turn it off.

What do you associate these file with?!?
In my association list, SCR isn't represented at all so I'm guessing the Screen Saver association is an internal one.

I searched the registry on both the workstation and server and found under ".scr" under HKCR... The data of the Xp 'puter was "AutoCad" I changed it to "scrfile" which is what is the 2k 'puter... a reboot I'll tell...

Not only do my *.SCRs not work my VBSs don't work either...

Got to be some utility somewhere to fix associations...


I got File Association Editor and have the two extensions set exactly the same on my Xp machine as my 2k machine, nothing...


HELP...

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
