It takes me probably more time to duplicate settings from Windows to FAR than it would take me to fix FAR.

Windows don't ask user where he wants to store association.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.xxx\Application = open_xxx.exe
is the only association user can change and other programs respect it.

It would be useful if FAR respects user settings too.

What I did: placed cursor over directory mydir, pressed f5, typed d:, pressed enter (Windows XP, FAR 1.70 beta4 build1282) What I expect: deep copy of whol...

Shift Enter makes no difference from Enter. After some reverse engineering work I found that although Windows say that wmplayer is uninstalled, HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.avi\ = "avifile" which leads to wmplayer lurking in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AVIFile\shell\play\command = "C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player...

Use Windows registered types

I'm getting strange behaviour when Use Windows registered types is on. I guess it's caused by some ugly Microsoft hack, so I don't blame FAR. But is there any simple workaround? Reprocase: 1. install windows xp with service pack 2 2. install far 1.70 beta4 3. uninstall windows media player, so there...
