When trying to open a DLL file with Dependency Walker to see exported symbols and other stuff via Open With / Look for another app on this PC I'm getting an unhelpful error box saying:

The program you have selected cannot be associated with this file type. Please choose another application.

What can I do about this?

Found a solution here: http://answers.microsoft.com/pl-pl/windows/forum/windows_8-files/program-you-have-selected-cannot-be-associated/a1721936-2c6b-4a51-b773-ec351822c374?tab=AllReplies#tabs

There was a registry key at HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\depends.exe called NoOpenWith, after deleting I've been able to open DLLs with Dependency Walker.
