SW iron does NOT open .url files !

Postby wtfbollos » Thu Sep 20, 2012 3:52 pm

hi,

when i click on .url files all i get is a blank page with the name of the file painted on the page and nothing else.

i thought this was becuase i was using the portable one and not the proper installed version (but why not have the portable version opening up .url files???), so i installed it fully and the SAME THING is haopening! :evil:

what do i need to do to, preferably get the portable versiob to read these files correctly, but failing that, the installed version??

please advise !

explorer, tools, options, file types, URL, advanced, open ==> verify you have something like that:

"C:\Program Files\SRWare Iron\iron.exe" -- "%1"

i'm on W7, so you don't get at file types that way (it's "default programs" in CP), but i went into the registry and found this:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\IronPortable.exe\shell\open\command

set to: "C:\laptop software\IronPortable\IronPortable.exe" "%1"

so i think that's fine..
