RTF association problem in Registry.
Posted on 1997-09-25
The program that I am creating requires an RTF association with a word processor in the Windows Registry. Most of the time, the RTF extension is associated with Word For Windows. However, occasionally the user's might be running Microsoft Works, Word Perfect, Wordpad, or other Word processors.
The problem is that the RTF association does not always exist in the registry and I need to create this association depending on which word processor they have.
I attempted to force everyone to associate RTF with wordpad, however wordpad did not open the RTF file correctly every time. So unless there is a patch for wordpad to make sure that the RTF always works, I will require a list of the registry keys that I need for each wordprocessor.
