    Associating Data files with programs


    I have a program, written in C++, that writes register keys in HKEY_CURRENT_USER to associate files with a particular suffix with a program. This works well under XP, but the explorer built into wine does not seem to recognise this at all (neither the icon, nor the associated program). I am wondering if I should try HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, or if I am pushing wine a bit too hard!

    Note: I have confirmed using regedit that the relevant keys have been written.

    I am using wine 1.3.24

    Well, I guess I can now answer my own question! By using HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT I can get the association, but it should work on a per user basis to match Windows - so I guess this is a wine bug. Even so, this it great that I can match so much Windows functionality with wine!
