If for example i double-click a file which is an unknown file type.
(You know,which open the "Open-with..." menu.)

There is no "Open-with..." menu that appears. Instead this message appears: (Look at attached image)

Any help?:rolleyes:

[In this example, i opened the file "QIII.isu" which doesn't have any valid application that can launch or open it.]

.isu isn't an unknown file type. It is an uninstall file. Did you check if it is there at the specified path?

If it is there, do you have by chance 8dot3 filename creation disabled?

Didn't know that an .isu file was an uninstall file.
Anyway, any type of unknown file, like .dll for example.
When i double click a file with a .dll extension, there is no
"Open-with" menu. Instead it says that windows cannot find that file.(Even though it's in there!)

(I just found out that even know file types are like this)

See attachment below to see the step-by-step happening.

I wonder if this has something to do with spaces or inability to use long file names. Make a folder with a short name with no spaces. Create a text document in that folder with a short name and no spaces in the file name.

Example:
C:\test\test1.txt

Write something in the text file and save it. Try to do the Open With... thing and see if you get the same results.

Ahh...
Anyone??

I think that a registry code went wrong or something when i choose "choose program".

Can somebody look for it?

Somtimes its just best to do a repair and get on with your life. If it is indeed a registry error, and you have no recent back ups then you are out of luck. :(

Only registry entry I can think of would be at
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT \ * \ shellex \ ContextMenuHandlers \ Open With \
Default vaule on mine is
{09799AFB-AD67-11d1-ABCD-00C04FC30936}

If you think it's a registry "eror", why not try a System Restore - do a System Restore to a point prior to this happening as that will restore your registry to that state.

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
