I have been looking everywhere, and keep getting information that leads me to places in the registery that does not work.  I basically need to create a clickable file (.bat, .reg whatever) that will change the file associations to an installed program.  I basically need to set the file associations for image files to ifranview.  Although I know ifranview can do this from within the program, asking my customers to go through the menus is (as I am sure those of you that help friends/customers over the phone) is a very tedious task.  Sending them a bat or reg file that will do the trick is the only feasible way I can think of to do it.  I work best with examples, so if someone would give me an example with one file extension type (jpg for example) it will be a great help.


Thanks in advance.
