I've just done a fresh, clean install of Windows 7 on a new HD, and am experiencing the following issue:
I like to map my txt files to be opened with my editor of choice, PSPad. As usual, I have a portable installation of PSPad which I've manually moved into Program Files (x86)/development/PSPad.
When I right-click a txt file and choose Open With, PSPad does not appear in the list of recommended applications. That's expected. But when I click Browse, navigate to where the PSPad.exe file is and select it, there is still no association with PSPad and PSPad does not appear in this list (regardless of whether I have the "always use this association" checked or not).
I suspect security, ownership or read/write issues. What could be responsible for the File Association not working?
