J7N is an unknown quantity at this point

You can always associate files with programs the other Windows way: using Windows registry! That's the only method I ever use.

Here is an example of associating *.vob extension to be opened with either BSPlayer, VideoLAN or Windows Media, and displaying a custom icon "video_mg.ico". The paths will be different on your system, of course.


;; the extension to associate
;; file type, shortly describing the contents

;; custom type string, not mandatory
@="Motion Pictures Experts Group video"

;; icon to use

;; default application

;; name which will appear when right clicking on VOBs
@="• BSPlayer"

;; the path to bsplayer executable
@="d:\\apps\\bsplayer\\bsplayer.exe \"%L\""

@="• Windows Media"

@="mplayer2.exe \"%L\""

@="• VideoLAN Client"

@="d:\\apps\\vlc\\vlc.exe \"%L\""
