File association problem within PA.

  • So far I’ve tried e-mailing about this problem but heard no reply so I thought hopefully you guys can see my problem here.

    The problem I get is that when I double click on a file to open it within PA it won’t, since it won’t recognize my custom classes, as shown below (here is an example of mp3):






    @=“Edit in Audacity”

    @="“C:\Programs\Audacity\audacity.exe” “%1"”

    @=“Play in VLC”

    @="“C:\Programs\VLC\vlc.exe” –intf wxwin --advanced “%1"”

    @=“Play in foobar2000”

    @="“C:\Programs\foobar2000\foobar2000.exe” “%1"”

    @=“Enqueue in foobar2000”

    @="“C:\Programs\foobar2000\foobar2000.exe” /ADD “%1"”

    @=“Play in Media Player Classic”

    @="“C:\Programs\MPC\mplayerc.exe” “%1"”

    @=“Enqueue in Media Player Classic”

    @="“C:\Programs\MPC\mplayerc.exe” /ADD “%1"”

    @=“View in IrfanView”

    @="“C:\Programs\IrfanView\i_view32.exe” “%1"”

    @=“Play in Windows Media Player”

    @="“C:\Programs\Windows Media Player\wmplayer.exe” /Play “%L”"


    From what I can see (I shall use the above as an example), PowerArchiver looks for the file type (.mp3) and sees there is no supposed location for the action (it makes my job easier to put it under the extension you see), so it ignores that there is indeed an action under .mp3, unfortunately PA is the only application I’ve come accross that doesn’t like this.

    I actually have the latest stable (9.20) but it has done the same thing since 9.0+ I think, I’ve just beared with it for a while.

    Is it possible to let windows just handle it instead of PA looking for the class?

    Hope you can fix it, thanks.
