I am running Windows RT 8.1.
I am working with *.bas files and have successfully added the *.bas extension to Code Writer > Settings > File Types > Visual Basic file extension.
CodeWrtiter has successfully associated all pre-defined file extension with itself so that when I am on the desktop, say, and I click on, for instance, a *.c file, Windows automatically opens it in CodeWriter. Unfortunately there seems no straightforward way of associating a costumer extension, for instance *.bas, throught Windows.
I have tried:
*.bas file > Open With > Look for an app in the Store > CodeWriter / More options > Look for another app on this PC,
Control Panel > Default Programs > Associate a file type or protocol with a program > *.bas
hacking the registry: [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppModel\Repository\Packages\ActiproSoftwareLLC.562882FEEB491_126.96.36.199_neutral__24pqs290vpjk0\App\Capabilities\FileAssociations], and
trying to find a way within CodeWriter itself.
As I said, none has works for me. Even when working through the enabled Adminstrstor Windows RT profile.
Would it be possible for CodeWriter to tweek the Windows registry when I add a customer extension or for actiprosoftware.com to explain how to work around this problem and have non standard file extensions, that do appear in Control Panel > Default Programs > Associate a file type or protocol with a program > List of extensions become associated with CodeWriter.
