Can't open PSP files from Explorer

Hi,

I can no longer open PSP image files by clicking on them in Windows Explorer 
or 2xExplorer, the file manager that I usually use. Each time, another 
instance of PSP 9 opens, but the image does not appear. Instead, I get a 
Windows error message saying that Windows cannot find the file. JPG, TIF and 
BMP files open normally.

However, if I start PaintShop Pro 9 first, I can use PSP 9's File/Open 
command to open the file normally.

PSP 9 is specified as the default program for opening PSPs, but I also have 
PSP 7 and 8 installed on the computer. I've been using PSP 9 for quite a 
while without having this problem.

Is this a malfunction of Windows or with PSP 9? It feels like something has 
gotten corrupted or some Windows setting has changed. Is it generally 
necessary to re-install PSP 9 in cases like this?

I recently bought PSP XI, and plan to install it and keep PSP 9 until I 
decide if I like XI better. Given this problem with opening PSP files, 
should I take any special precautions when installing PSP XI?

Thank you.

Orrie

Your Windows file association of JPG to PSP is hosed. Try these
simple cures first:

1. File > Preferences > File Format Associations. Clear the check
mark on JPEG. Exit PSP. Restart Windows, come back here, and set the
check mark.

2. Make the Registry change described in Answer ID 758546 at

Thanks, Fred.

It's sort of working now. I reset the PSP 9 Preferences file association as 
you suggested, then exited and restarted Windows. Now, when I click on a JPG 
file, the PSP 9 splash screen appears immediately, but the program does not 
appear on-screen or on the task bar. If I wait a several seconds, 
right-click on the file in 2xExplorer or Explore, then click Open, PSP 9 
appears instantly, showing the image. It's as if it was hiding and just 
needed that little nudge to pop open.

I'll try the Registry change next.

Not the best advice IMHO.

In windoze Explorer goto Tools > Folder Options > File types.  Scroll 
down to Jpg, jpeg or any others that you would prefer to open in PSP.

Select, then hit delete on any listed file types you wish to change.  
Close the box then in Explorer go find a .jpg etc.  Right click > Open 
with.. > scroll down to the version of PSP you want to open these type 
of files with and make sure the Check Box "Always open with..." is 
checked.  Bahda bing, bahda boom.  Fixed!

Do not use but pretty sure that 2xExplorer would work somewhat the same.

Beware of home made registry changes.  Mucho bad juju therein.

Hope this helps.

You don't know much about programming and Windows' registry, do you.

I can do BASIC and have been messing around in the registry since '95 
enough to give tyros a warning afore they venture into the dark arts.

Oh yeah.

Fuck you.  Program that A-hole Troll.

File::open and File.open
What exactly is the difference between these? :: is a class method while is an instance method??? If that is so, could someone clarify this with more detail?

Opening files from Windows Explorer
I usually find it easier to open files by double-clicking on them in Windows Explorer, rather than browsing for them from the app. In Solidworks this has a few drawbacks, one of which is that you don't get the options to open the file either lightweight or as view-only.
