Re: [ jEdit-users ] Daily build - file association

Sarah Cranston
Dale - I'm pretty sure I cleared out all my old installs before downloading 5.4. I went to help>about and it says 5.4.0.

Robert - The "Open with jEdit" right-click option DOES already work (thankfully - otherwise I think I'd go crazy). Just not double-clicking to open.

... Apparently I never actually hit SEND on the above when I composed it several weeks ago. If anyone is curious, our IT guys at work just upgraded my machine to Windows 10 (fresh image, not upgrade-in-place) and then I did a fresh install of jEdit. The file associations are working beautifully, and I am very happily double-clicking away on my files to open them in jEdit now.

Hi Sarah,

I don't know, what's going on. But I guess it's a Windows problem. Since the ordinary manual way doesn't work for You, I would try it at a lower level:

Please create a text file with this content:


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\*\shell\Open with jEdit]
"Icon"="G:\\Tools\\jEdit_53\\jedit.exe"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\*\shell\Open with jEdit\Command]
@="\"G:\\Tools\\jEdit_53\\jedit.exe\" \"%1\""


and replace the path to jedit.exe with Your correct path. Note that backslashes which are parts of a pathname has to be duplicated inside this fie. If You don't have administration permissions, then also replace "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" by "HKEY_CURRENT_USER".

Save the edited file and run it by double-clicking and confirm the questions with OK.

If this didn't help I'd have a look into the registry with registry editor...

Robert

I can see I'm not explaining my problem very well, so let me try providing screenshots. I do click the "Browse" button, like in this picture:
Then I do navigate to jedit.exe, as you describe, like in this picture:
But after that step, jEdit does NOT appear in the list of options - here is what I get:
So I'm unable to complete Step 5E: Ensure “jEdit – Programmer’s Text Editor” is selected in the dialog.


Does my problem make sense? Am I missing something obvious?

thanks,
Sarah
