Folder Options Control Panel

  dads3a 21:45 14 May 2007

Tried to register Encarta and Open Office and both times I've had this error message

"This folder does not have a program assosiated withit for performing this action. Create an assosiation in the folder options control panel"

I know how to get into the file types in the control panel but I don't know what to do next.

Can someone steer me in the right direction please

Hi, all about Control Panel ...

click here

also scroll down to about half-way and look for File Associations for further info.

In Control Panel Add/Remove window, click on Set Program Access and Defaults, in left-hand column.

I reset the browserndefault to IE instead of Firefox and it seems to have cured it.

If someone could confirm that this is what may have caused this then I can get the wee box ticked.
