    Cs6 does not regiser in my Win 7 Registry

    RBLindley

      I tryed to change my .JPG files to default to CS6, I go thru all the procedures but CS6 does not show up in my sysem default program list.  The answer from Microsoft  is the CS6 did not register in the system registry when I installed it.  How do I accomplish this?

            I want to default association for .JPEG, .JPG files to CS6.  CS6 will not

            show up in the system default program list.  I tried to go to properties of

            a .JPG file then "browse" for a default, I select photoshop CS6 as my

            default program, but, it does not accept.  Microsoft tells me that when CS6

            was installed (recently) it did not register properly in my systems

            registry.  How can I get CS6 registered into my system registry so it shows

            up in the default program list???

             

             

             

            Thanks for your help

              I select photoshop CS6 as my

              default program, but, it does not accept. 

               

              What do you mean by, it does not accept?

               

              There are 2 ways to do this,

              1. Right click on a Jpeg -> Properties -> General Tab -> Change -> Browse to "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS6 (64 Bit)\Photoshop.exe" -> Open -> OK
              2. Control Panel -> Default Programs -> "Associate a file type or protocol with a specific program" -> Find and Select .JPEG -> Change Program -> Browse to "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS6 (64 Bit)\Photoshop.exe" -> Open -> OK

               

              Ideally that should work. If it does not, tell us exactly whats happening when you try to do so.

                You have too many file handlers. Clean them out using your Windows Explorers File --> Organize --> File Types and then manually re-associate them with Photoshop using the Open with... method. And make sure the file associations are not reinstated by any other programs liek virus scanners, image viewers, packer tools and so on...

                  Yes, I understand what you are saying and I have been following these

                  procedures for many years.  I know very well how to associate a file type

                  with an application. I'm so sorry my question is not understood.  According

                  to Microsoft when I installed CS6, it did not update my system registry

                  properly so it will not show up as a program in the associate file list.  I

                  even went to browse and clicked on the CS6 Photoshop.exe file to associate

                  an open .JPG file.  This failed.

                   

                  I guess I probably should uninstall CS6 and re-install it to see if it

                  registers properly to Windows 7.

                    Microsoft people are correct ...it is the registry issue because of which the problem is coming up.

                     

                    NOTE:- Please create a system restore point and do the registry Back up before making any changes , as playing with the registry could be fatal for your computer.

                     

                    Navigate to Computer\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications and find your .exe name ex:- Photoshop.exe

                    Navigate under its name to shell>open>command.

                     

                    In the Default change its location to the actual location of the executable, Ex:- "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS6 (64 Bit)\Photoshop.exe" "%1" ( at my end)

                    hit okay and then try and reassociate the file type as you normally would.

                      You are 100% correct, thank you; this saves me a lot of effort.  CS6 now

                      works as it should.
