File Associations Reset


G

Guest

Hello,

I installed a bunch of programs and now my file associations are messed up,
specifically the .zip extension. Can somebody help me fix the .zip, or
preferably totally reset the defaults? I tried linking to zipfldr.dll and it
says that it isn't a valid application.

Thanks!

For just reassigning the ZIP extension:

To get ZIP back in Windows Vista, click Start, All Programs,
Accessories. Right-click Command Prompt and choose Run as administrator.
Click through the User Account Control folderol. When the command prompt
comes up, type:

assoc .zip=CompressedFolder

and then press Enter. Vista gurgles for a second or two, and when it
comes back, your ZIPS should be restored to life.

Hey, good link there Michael! And I'm not surprised to see that it is
Ramesh who has some fixes available for this problem, too. What a guy!

Hey, David... good to see you.

Ramesh and his site are absolutely invaluable.
He most definitely deserves to be called a

Take care,

You're welcome.

Ramesh Srinivasan deserves the credit.

Ramesh has one of the most helpful
