After installing LibreOffice and then unistalling OpenOffice, all the files for the many office document types (odt, ods, doc, xls, rtf and a dozen more) are unassociated with any application. When I try to associate the file with an application the short way (right click > open > select the program from a list), none of the LibreOffice applications show up in the list. If I click the Browse button and pick the executable in the LibreOffice 3 folder, the program is not added to the list so that I can select it.
This leaves me to have to associate all the file types the long way (windows explorer > tools > folder options > file types etc.. )
Is there a way to "register" an application so that it is available for selecting from the "Open with" application list in Windows XP?
