    Win file associations - Cloud programs

    David Tidwell

      After installing cloud programs, Win "file associations" won't allow change to PS6. Any suggestions?

          What exactly do you mean "won't allow"?  Which filetypes?

            I'm trying to associate most pixel-based files (bmp, jpg, tiff, etc.) with PS6. When I go to file associations to select a program to open a particular file type, none of the Adobe 6 programs are shown as options. When I go to Browse to manually select the program exe and double click, the program file is not selected and it reverts to whatever program was initially selected when the file association application opened.

              Hi David,

               

              While changing the file association manually make sure the option 'Always use the selected program to open this kind of file' is checked.

                You have too many file association instated by other programs/ tools. Make those otehr tools behave by turning off their options to associate themselves with each and every file type (virus scanners, packer tools etc. do that frequently) and/or manualyl clean out your file associations using the respective options in Windows Explorer.
