I recently upgraded my Adobe CS4 Des. Standard to CS5. For some reason Adobe didn't overwrite CS4 but instead installed CS5 as a whole new series of programs. Seeing as I didn't want both CS4 & CS5 I un-installed CS4.
Problem was, it also destroyed all my file associations. So
.indd etc... aren't associated with any program.
Theoretically this should be easy to fix. Right-click
my_file.ai -> properties -> Change open with application -> navigate to
Illustrator.exe in program files and click open. And that's supposed to do it.
Wrong, When I navigate to Illustrator and try and set it as default program, it simply does nothing. No error, but no association
So I'm stuck. Is there a way to do it in
regedit? Or is there something I'm missing?
OS is Windows 7
