File Extension Assoiciation

um, that is called a link. You click on it. LOL.

Yep, I made another script.

I have heard alot of people in the forums that can't be bothered with the systems registry and yet they complain of being unable to associate files from within a script. NO OFFENSE. I AM HERE TO HELP.

This is a VERY simple script. It does all of that for you. Although it is not alot.

Just use the commands to create new file types, add new items to the menu, set it's icon, delete file types, add to new menu(Sometimes doesn't work with newly created file types on my comp anyway for some f*** up reason.

So if ur need it then use it. A listing of the commands and how to use them is in the comments of my script. You just include it and use it. I trust that all of you know how to do so.

But for newbies just in case:

#Include "FileExtAss.AU3"

Stop laughing just because it says ass at the end.

Warning: If you download and/or include this, comment line 18:

FileTypeDestroy("PIS")

If you don't it'll delete the .pis extension, though it doesn't appear that any programs use this, it sure as hell shouldn't be in a incude file!

Edit: Other than that, this looks like a very handy include and I'll be saving it in case I need it later...

As long as you didn't screw with the code that's perfectly fine by me.

Seriously? You actually posted that? After the last two responses to this thread you'd think you would have realized that this thread is 10 years old, and the original poster isn't even a member any longer.

Think before you post next time, or at least read before you do.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
