Re: define an file association default open action

I have now edited the aip file and removed these strings.
This works, however this is not my preferred method.
So a proper solution would be fine.

Re: define an file association default open action

I cannot set a property there. I can only enter text.
I tried to use a translation.
But now always [EMPTY] is set in the registry.

But windows does this this translation itself when the string is emtpy (=HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\[myfileextension]\...

Re: How to terminate all instances of e.g. explorer.exe

It seems with AI 13, there is no need to terminate the explorer.exe.
Working fine so far.

Re: How to terminate all instances of e.g. explorer.exe

I have now updated to AI 13.1
But the checkbox 'Run under the LocalSystem account with full privileges (no impersonation)' is disabled?
No hint or explanation why?


Ok, I now checked 'When the system is being modified (deferred)' then it is enabled.

It seems, all these options are not available in AI 7.1.3?
