what is wrong with this script _associate

Recommended Posts

camilla

hello everybody, as you see i'm newbie and i'm learning about autoit commands such as " Associate file type"

i did thid script , but it didn't work for me

 

 

;I am learning
_Associate (".jpg", "JPGFile", "%1")

Func  _Associate($EXT , $FileType, $FileName)

RegWrite ("HKCR" & $EXT & "", $FileType)
RegWrite ("HKCR" & $FileType & "", "MY file")
RegWrite ("HKCR" & $FileType & "DefaultIcon", $FileName)
RegWrite ("HKCR" & $FileType & "shellopencommand", $FileName & " %1")
EndFunc

it didn't change anything, while this code

 

RegWrite('HKCR.jpeg', '', 'REG_SZ', 'jpegfiles')
RegWrite('HKCRjpegfilesshellopencommand', '', 'REG_SZ', "%1")

works but the icon of the changed extension does not appear as an jpg icon

i want to keep the same icon ,but run any changed exe to jpj

thank you in advance

Path and parameters must be enclosed in quotation marks.

RegWrite("HKCR\" & $FileType & "\shell\open\command\", '"' & $FileName & '" "%1"')

i can rewrite my question like this

create new file type extension Example (tmpx) with the icon of a (jpeg)?

by means the system any OS will show (tmpx) exactly as a (jpeg) file. after associating the extension to it

Just out of curiosity, why do you want to make an icon look like it is something that it isn't?  That example of renaming an EXE to JPG, to look like a JPG, but still execute is a little worrisome to me.

You can try looking at this article.

http://www.winhelponline.com/blog/change-file-type-icon-windows-7-vista/

I can't guarantee that it will work on XP also.  Since they handle a lot of things differently, there is often no one size fits all solution.

thank you for your answer,but i want to do that through an autoit script i posted here

i did this but it doesn't help

 

RegWrite('HKCR.tmpx', '', 'REG_SZ', 'tmpxfile')

RegWrite('HKCRtmpxfileDefaultIcon' "", "REG_SZ",  "c:icon.ico ,1");icon.ico is an jpeg ico

RegWrite('HKCRtmpxfileshellopencommand', '', 'REG_SZ', "%1")

 

any idea?

The article I referenced gives you the registry entries that need to be made.  You just need to put it into RegRead and RegWrite statements.

If you read the article, and the help file on RegRead and RegWrite, I am sure you will figure it out.  You won't learn anything if I do it for you.

Note: If the DefaultIcon key does not exist by default, you need to create it manually.

7. In the right-pane, double-click (default) and mention the path to your custom icon (.ico file or reference to an icon resource from a EXE/DLL file)

 

i think i did it in the script above

 

RegWrite('HKCRtmpxfileDefaultIcon' ,"", "REG_SZ",  "c:icon.ico ,1");icon.ico is an jpeg ico

 

but nothing changed

You have a space between .ico and the comma, which may make a difference?

And have you tried another number other than '1' after the comma?

Perhaps it needs to be zero '0'

Where did you get the icon file from?

Is it a legitimate icon file, as recognized by Windows?

Try another file, a Windows one, that you know has icon images in it (i.e. dll or exe).

I presume you've pre-tested things manually, before using code to do it for you?

In some of your code in posts above, I see the odd missing key, value or comma, etc.

We do worry when things could be used in a malicious way!

So please keep that in mind when having these type of questions,
