Pdf File Association Not Found In Live Mail


If a message received in live mail on a windows 7 home premium 64 bit machine contains a pdf file attachment, that attachment cannot be opened from live mail. Word file attachments and others can be opened.

When the attempt to open the pdf file attachment is made, the message informs that "this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. " If the file is saved to the local computer, it can be opened normally, as the file association is correct. This is confirmed by typing assoc .pdf in a command window and receiving the response ".pdf=acroexch.document". How can opening pdf documents from live mail be accomplished without saving them first.

Live Mail - Importing Messages From .pst File

I recently purchased a new computer which runs windows 7. My email program is windows live mail.

My old computer had windows xp, and i used outlook as my email program. I saved all my email messages from outlook (old computer) into a ". Pst" file on an external hard drive, before wiping my old computer's hard drive clean. I need help transferring (or extracting) my messages from my . Pst file, into windows live mail (new computer).

So, to summarize:
1. Old outlook email messages stored in a . Pst folder in an external hard drive
2. New computer runs windows 7, and email program is windows live mail
3. I want to transfer my old emails (stored in . Pst file) into my new computer.

How can i accomplish this task?

File Association Problem

I wanted to see if windows explorer could preview winrar files (.rar file extension) like it does with winzip (.zip file extension) files. So i right clicked on a winrar file and clicked on "open with. " This opened up the "open with" box which says, "choose the program you want to open this file:" there was a check mark in the box marked "always use the selected program to open this kind of file. " I then browsed to the windows directory and chose "explorer.exe" and then clicked on ok in the "open with" box. I started seeing the spinning circle but nothing happened.

The spinning circle would not stop so i rebooted. After the reboot, i noticed that all the rar file icons now looked like the windows explorer icon. The first thing i tried to was going through the same process as before to set the file association of .rar files back to winrar. The problem was that the check mark in the box marked "always use the selected program to open this kind of file" was grayed out and could not be selected.

Windows was blocking me from taking the association away from "windows explorer. "I even tried it in safe mode, but that did not work either. I then went in to the "default programs"located in the start menu. I clicked on associate a file type or protocol with a program. I started looking for the (.rar file extension), but it was not in there. So then i tried uninstalling and reinstalling winrar, both in and out of safe mode, but that did not work. Then i tried was running the system restore, but that failed. I'll have to look into that later, it has failed the last three times i tried because it could not find a file it was looking for.

I read through the post called " problems with "file association" in windows 7 64-bit" on this site, but did not find an answer. I did see something about "to fix the corrupted user profile you may refer the link below:" i followed the link and did the stuff it suggested. I made a new user and copied all of my "user files" to the newly created user. When i logged in, the file association problem was gone, but now i have to reload all of my programs, set up all of my settings, wallpapers, icons, dpi setting. More than i want to do if i can save my other user account.

My computer specs:dell inspiron 1520cpu: intel core2 duo t7500 @ 2. 20ghz windows 7 enterprise 64-bit winrar 3. 70

Notepad++ File Association

I can't get a file association to work with notepad+, but the program works normally otherwise. Other file associations are fine eg i can set . Gif to whatever i like and it will open that program consistently, but setting .xml to open notepad+ has no effect; the program is not listed in "open with", not even under "other programs", despite clicking "browse" then the application name as i would under win xp.

Strangely, right click "edit with notepad+" works, but is clumsy when you need to open dozens of xml files at a time like i do.

Cannot Change File Association

I was stupid enough to set a . Nut file to automatically open with cmd.exe (trying to use squirral to script for left 4 dead 2) and now i cannot reverse my idiotic mistake, anyone got any ideas? I have tried right clicking and going to properties, default program is not there, i can manually open it with notepad by right clicking and clicking open with. But the "always open with this program" box is disabled. I have also tried to change it through control panel/set associations but still
No luck. :( Anyone got any ideas?

Unable To Change File Association

So i'll explain my problem: i upgraded my computer from vista to 7. I then had a problem with a corrupted profile, so i had to create a new one and transfer all my files, and i'm thinking that the problem i've got here is related.

The fact is that i'm unable to change files types associations, but if i make it from the program i'd like to open files with, it works. Here is how i'm doing it (i just don't want one of those stupid answer where someone will try to teach me how to do it the usual way):

-Right click on the file
-Open with
-Chose default program

#The problem exists only if the program i want to set as default isn't in the list of programs appearing at this step

- I click browse
- I browse, and select my file.exe
- "Always utilize this program blablabla" is ticked

#At this point, my program hasn't appeared in the list and i haven't a clue why, so another one is selected in blue.

- And finally i hit ok, and the previous default program is launched, and yet i'm irritated.
I looked for answers on the internet, and it appears that i'm experiencing this because during my new installations, my programs aren't registered normally in hkey_classses_roots, but i'm not so comfortable changing registry, and i'd have to register each one of my programs. So i'm looking for a way to do them altogether.

I also think that it is a permissions problem, but i've got only one user and one account. And it's an administrator one! Thanks to everyone that will give me an answer or at least a hint on this bug!

File Association Checkbox Disabled

I want to permanently set a file association, but the "always use the selected program to open this kind of file" is disabled. There are tons of people on the internet with this problem. Their suggestions are to make a couple of changes in the registry, which i tried but it doesn't enable this check box. I’m an admin on the box; i just want to set this thing rather than having to "open with" every time i want to open my . Chm file. What the heck am i supposed to do to get this to work?

Office 2007 File Association Icons Missing

File association icons missing, namely office 2007 icons and adobe programs. Nearly a month ago my file association icons just disappeared for a select few programs and file types. Currently the programs missing the icon/displaying a blank icon are: itunes, adobe reader 9, adobe audition 3, and all the programs in the microsoft office 2007 suite (word, excel, publisher, etc. ) As well as .doc, .docx, . Xls, . Xlsx, and all other standard microsoft office file type extensions and the adobe acrobat default file extensions. (.pdf)

I have tried all the standards: uninstalling office 2007, re-installing office, restarting before/after installs/re-installs, anything regarding the icon cache, resetting default file types etc. All that is shown is a blank "file" icon however, the program still launches upon selecting the files it's just quite annoying needing to view the file types to determine at a glance what program will open selected file.

User Sets File Association Now System Restore Doesn't Work

On a brand new laptop the user copied some word files over, and they opened on the new computer just fine. Then they copied some more .doc files and they could not open them, so (they claim) they choose word as the default file association (which is fine, except it should not have prompted for that in the first place). After that all the word document shortcuts they created on the desktop changed to a shortcut with ie's 'e' symbol - clicking them flashes up a screen that instantly goes away (ie i assume) and ie's download file dialog then opens.

Further, an attempt to open ie acts the same way. Worse, running system restore does the same thing - flash, then ie files downloaded dialog - asking if i want to open one of the files listed (which are the . Lnk files to the word documents on the desktop). So short of doing a full system restore, and also short of manually copying the registry files from the last restore point (which i'm not sure is even possible on a windows 7 drive) what can i do to resolve this mess?

Downloading And Viewing A Pdf File

When i log into my utility provider web site to view my bill, internet explorer 8 opens a window and tries to down load the pdf file but just sits doing nothing. I have adobe reader 9 installed and if i try a different browser the pdf file is displayed correctly even with my anti virus active and i can print and save the file so the problem is obviously ie8. I have checked the settings etc but cannot see any thing obvious that is stopping the file from opening. Have tried shutting down my anti virus to see if this is affecting it but it has no effect.

When i try to print a pdf file from ie it prints as a mirror image. I can change this in the printer driver, but the next time it will default to mirror printing again. If i copy the file to the desktop, open it from there and print, everything is. I have asked hp (printer manufacturer) and they say that since it prints ok from the desktop, it is not a printer problem.

Live Mail - Only Get Mail As Administrator

I have a hp desktop that came with vista and was upgraded to windows 7. I had a hard job getting any windows live mail. I can only get mail if i log in as an administrator. I think it has something to do with permissions and parent permissions and a few other things i don't understand. I have tried to change a few settings in the properties box and a couple of them have told me if i continue with the change i fooled with i would never see e-mail again. If i just try to start it normally it says it is configuring mail and just disappears. The only thing it really screws up is that i can't send articles and papers via e-mail.

Live Mail Gripe

Have upgraded to live mail withy w7 and find one thing very annoying. I use mailwasher to screen my email before i bring it into the computer. I set live mail to not check automatically because that's what mailwasher does. After a period of time live mail checks anyway. It also always checks when it comes out of hibernation. When i asked ms tech support about why it does that, i was told it was built into live mail. Really?

Why should ms decide whether i want to check mail automatically and why do they have the checkbox to turn it off if some software writer thinks i should do it even if i don't wnat to? Does anyone know of a work around or way to turn this off permanently?

Live Mail Signatures

I have set up live mail with a number of e-mail accounts. Each account has its own signature stating the address of the individual e-mail account and the url of my website. All of the signatures show up in the 'insert > signature' option and the correct signature for the e-mail account can be inserted into the e-mail body.

If i choose the 'add signatures to all outgoing e-mails' in 'tools > options > signatures', a new e-mail will open with the default e-mail address signature (as expected). However, clicking the 'from' button in order to choose a different account from which to send the e-mail doesn't change the signature. Should it?

I have been working with windows 7 review candidate and just recently upgraded to windows 7 premium edition via upgrade from vista. I had been using windows live mail. Once the upgrade was complete my mail appeared to work properly however, i am unable to open mail that was received prior to the upgrade, i am getting a message that "message cannot be found. The contents of this message cannot be found".

However all of the mail that been received after the upgrade is readable. How can i read the mail that was received earlier. Is there someway to recover these emails as they do appear in my "in-box" folder.
