    Wrong File Association

    Sorry guys...I uninstalled and re-installed, and now all is OK.
    ---
    If I'm on the wrong board, apologies.

    I am trying to set IrfanView as the default to open PNG files, which are currently associated for viewing with the Windows Photo Viewer.

    So I tried setting it via Open With, and then by using the Default Programs dialog. Both show IrfanView as the set association, but when I go to view a file it come up in the Windows Photo Viewer.

    How do I fix this?

    Regards,
    Chuck Billow

    Yea Ted, it must've just been something screwed up in the associations, because re-installing was the only thing that seemed to fix it...but at least it did fix it!

    Thanks,
    Chuck
