This PC I have here has lost all associations, and everything is .ink files. I have tried following the guides of others on this site with the same problem, but I am having no such luck.

I have successfully booted into OTLPE environment...I just need someone to walk me through the best way to do this. I realize that if I fix the .bat association, I can fix them all very easily. Anyway....please help! :)

Thanks.

XP Media Center Edition. BUT....while I was at lunch, I figured it out! I had an epiphany and it worked out. I manually re-associated .exe files, which let me run Regedit, then I reassociated .bat files, and ran a batch file to fix the rest of the associations. Everything seems to work, except I can't open up cetain things....like Add/Remove Programs. So there are still some things wrong. Please guide me on whatever you want me to do. Thanks!

What error do you receive?

Did you run the CPL association fix?

It's not an error per say that's coming up anymore, but when I right click on the time, and choose "Adjust data/time" nothing pops up, the hourglass flickers really fast, then nothing. Same thing with Add/Remove Programs. Probably more system related things wont open, I just haven't tried them all. I will run this fix though and see what happens.
