  • *.exe File Association help

    Hi,

    I've marked my Windows 2008 R2 server's *.exe files to be open with EditPlus by mistake (with "Open With" thinking exe is the config file).

    Which program should i choose (in right click "Open With") to reverse this to the right association ?

    Thanks!

      Thanks!

      Is there a way to do it with "Open with" ?

        Looking at the REG file in the MS link, no (since the Open With is set to hex(0) - presumably meaning nothing

        I suspect the reasoning is that an EXE file does not open via another program, but runs directly

        What is the problem with creating the reg file as suggested?
