We use an in house program that resides on the user's Windows profile directory, and works with a custom file type. Normally I just associate a file with the correct extension ( .alc ) to the in house program via the file properties dialog in the Windows GUI without any trouble.
I have a user who changed the default program to Adobe Reader, and I am now unable to change the default program back to the one that is actually supposed to be used to open this file type. I can select the correct .exe file via the file properties dialog, but now it doesn't allow me to set our in-house .exe to as the program it should be opened with.
I also tried deleting each instance of the .alc file type from the registry ( After setting a restore point, of course.) which removes the association with Adobe Reader, but I am still unable to associate it with the correct exe.
At this point, I've run out of ideas for things to try, and would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks.
