How do I register a file type as part of my InstallShield Express Professional installation?
Posted on 1998-09-13
I have written a program in VB 4 which allows the creation and editing of .rev files which are unique to my program. I'm using InstallShield Express Professional V. 1.11a (*NOT* the setup program that comes with VB) to create the setup which provides the install/uninstall facilities for my end users.
What I want to do is make the InstallShield Express Professional setup program (*NOT* the actual program I have wrote) automatically register/unregister the .rev type, so that when a .rev file is viewed in Explorer etc., it appears as an icon I have specified. Double clicking a .rev file should then automatically launch my program so the file can be edited, just like clicking on a .txt file will launch Notepad..
Thanks for your help.
