I am on windows server 2003, but I guess it is the same on windows xp.
I moved some movable applications (usually people create them for usb sticks) to locations like c:\bin\app1\app1.exe. The old location was c:\programs\app1\app1.exe
app1.exe can open files of type *.ap1
When I rightclick file.ap1 and choose open with ... the Open with dialog appears. But it is not working how I expect in this situation. I can choose c:\bin\app1\app1.exe with the "Browse" button, but:
app1.exe will not appear in the dialog where I just choosed it in the programs list, like I am used to it after clicking OK on it in the browse dialog.
app1.exe will not open it when I click ok in the "Open with" dialog, the application that was assigned until then will still open it
What could be the reason?
- my account is member of the administrators group
- I just changed the permissions of the folder c:\bin\app1\ and made sure that the group "Administrators" has all rights. I also inherited this manually to all subfodlers and subfiles.
- I also tried to move the application (with the whole folder) to "c:\program files\app1\app1.exe
