    Corrupted file association

    Update: I just went back and restored a backup. I dunno what caused the issue, but until it pops up again...
    ---
    I use Textpad as my text editor -- happily I might add, for the last several years. Now I am having a problem with a particular file type.

    I created a file type -- "dbp" -- for posting. I set this up ages ago, and it worked fine. It's part of the "New" items in the context menu as well, and it was working as well. Not any more! So...

    Now, if I dbl-click a DBP file, Textpad starts up OK, but then I get an error "There was a problem sending the command to the program."

    I tried uninstalling and re-installing Textpad, but that did nothing. I even tried restoring a registry backup, but that didn't fix it either.

    What is this and how the h--- can I fix it without restoring a backup or anything so drastic?

    Regards,
    Chuck Billow

    Thanks Jag. Although I think that link is for "dbf" files -- database files, where mine is a simple text file with a specific extension.
