Under Windows XP/32, I have configured files without an extesions, such as
README, to be opened by:
C:\Programme\Emacs\bin\emacsclientw.exe -n "%1"
I used the guide available at the following URL:
Now, this works fine on local drives. However, on network drives, Windows Explorer alway gives me a warning. Something like: The file type is unknown and it may be unsafe to open it. (Original is in German)
Note that I access the share by its netbios name. And two more things:
Opening e.g. a
.txtfile works fine. No prompt.
The default program for opening extension-less files on the share is not EMACS, as for the local share. It is some other random text editor, "Rex".
How do I get rid of that warning?
I was able to solve the problem with files being opened in "Rex" instead of EMACS. Concerning how to properly set up associations for files without extension: Take a look at the page on Win32 file associations on EmacsWiki, which I amended.
