+1 though for hinting to that registry key, although in the comments.

The only key under the FileExts folder is just Directory, whereas on a good install there are hundreds of file extensions listed here.

I already tried the command prompt, that's when I concluded the file really does not exist.

As a trial, I think I should create a new user account, and see if the same thing happens there.

comment Show Desktop button too quick in Windows 7
Plus I only use system restore if something's corrupted. This is just one particular setting. It's highly illogical to revert to a restore point just to fix one setting.

@Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 For people who are afraid to do things like change registry entries, not to revert one tiny little setting.

comment Show Desktop button too quick in Windows 7
Awesome, and I'm assuming it also requires a restart of Explorer.exe to apply the changes. Unless there's a Windows API call or message I could call to apply the change?

comment After the Heartbleed bug, do we need to update our OpenSSL DLL's?
Perhaps I should have asked this in a more programming oriented site which knows about Indy, I know Stack Overflow wouldn't have been the right place to ask this.

Of course I don't understand it, that's why I'm asking about it...

comment After the Heartbleed bug, do we need to update our OpenSSL DLL's?
@Ramhound I know I can't just replace the files. Please see the edits in my question. What really matters is whether the issue requires fixes in the application or the operating system.

comment After the Heartbleed bug, do we need to update our OpenSSL DLL's?
I honestly know nothing about it, just that Indy has it integrated into it and an Indy component we use requires these DLL's. Also, the version doesn't matter with my question. I'm basically asking is the problem exposed in any version of any OpenSLL implementation, or is it something in Windows.

comment How to make an extremely old app run on 64bit Windows?
Indeed, it's a rather addicting game, and I have towers saved from the many years ago when I used to play it. Found them saved on some floppy disks I was sorting through :D

Excellent (except no install / setup, it runs stand-alone)

@Rik Yup, I edited my comment to point that out (although the license should be obvious :-) )

Otherwise, another option would be Oracle Virtual Box, or equivalent virtual machine software - running any other version of Windows which supports this.

comment How to restrict volume output in Windows 7?
I know all about the standard windows volume control. I'm looking for a deeper setting in Windows so that when the master volume is 100% it feeds an output of 80% for example, and not one application at a time.
