help with fileregister

Recommended Posts


I'm trying to use the fileregister function from the FAQ (Q16) to register an extension, and I'm having trouble getting it to register my extension as the default. I'm feeling like I'm missing something obvious, but I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.

What's happening is my script is registering my extension, but the extension will not show up as the default. If I double click a test.nom file after registering the .nom extension, I get the "Open with.." dialog.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

My script is as follows:

#include "FileRegister.au3"

Global Const $SHCNE_ASSOCCHANGED = 0x08000000
Global Const $SHCNF_IDLIST     = 0x0000

$iconfile = @ScriptDir & "\noma shortcut.ico"

if $CmdLine[0] = 0 Then
    MsgBox(0,'Error','Usage: ' & @CRLF & @ScriptName &  ' /r :  register .nom extension' & @CRLF & @ScriptName &  ' /u :  unregister .nom extension' )

switch $CmdLine[1]
Case '/r'
    FileRegister("nom", '"' & @AutoItExe  & '" /link "%1"', "Open Noma link",1, $iconfile, "Noma link")
    FileRegister("nom", '"' & @AutoItExe  & '" /view "%1"', "View Noma link",0, $iconfile, "Noma link")

Case '/u'
    FileUnRegister("nom", "Open Noma link")
    FileUnRegister("nom", "View Noma link")
Case '/link'
    MsgBox(0,'link','parameter is ' & $CmdLine[2])
Case '/view'
    MsgBox(0,'view','parameter is ' & $CmdLine[2])  

Func refresh()
    DllCall('shell32.dll', 'none', 'SHChangeNotify', 'long', $SHCNE_ASSOCCHANGED, 'uint', $SHCNF_IDLIST, 'ptr', chr(0), 'ptr', chr(0))
