    Accessing OS icon and file association database

    Marcidus

      i've seen Filezilla do it.  somehow, based solely on the extension of a file on a remote server, the program is capable of knowing the OSs associated icon.  well i need my Air app to do the same thing.

       

      for windows, all i have gathered is that the management of file associations are processed within a group of DLL class files, however i doubt that is where the icons are stored.

       

      is there a way to find the default application based on a file extension on windows, mac and linux?

       

      thanks
