Re: *.lnk file problem

Dave,
Thanks for the reply.
I tried that ( the lnk was to another program )

However even after re-booting the PC the link file still
won’t work. I tried creating a new shortcut but this
doesn’t work either ( it comes up with the same program
associated ) It seems to be stuck to another application
program.
I checked under Folder options and File types but there's
no association for a Lnk file in the list.
(I'm working with Windows 2000)
-----Original Message-----
From a command prompt;
assoc .lnk
should return with
..lnk=lnkfile
If not
assoc .lnk=lnkfile

Can anyone tell me which program to associate the lnk file
type with ?

I loaded an upgrade and ever since the links on my desktop
etc won't open. This includes the link to the Office
shortcut bar as well.
Wen I try to open any *.lnk I get a message telling me
that it cannot find the Program.exe file associated with
it.

Open notepad and paste the following:

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\lnkfile\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\lnkfile\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\{00021401-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}]



Save the file as temp.reg (Select "all file types" to avoid notepad appending .txt) then browse to temp.reg and double click it, and choose accept.

This restores Explorer's file handler for lnk files.
