Delphi 7 file associations - "repair" installation doesn't
Posted on 2003-11-22
I recently upgraded from Delphi 5 pro to Delphi 7 pro. I installed D7 while keeping D5 installed until I got everything working in D7. Then I uninstalled D5. Now all the file associations have been lost for Delphi files. I tried the D7 repair installation but it did not repair the problem. As far as I can tell, the old "registry only" installation is no longer present. Re-installing D7 with the same options on top of the existing installation does not fix the problem.
Is there any way to fix the installation without completely uninstalling and re-installing? I've done quite a bit of customizing and installing my specialized settings, components, etc, so I hate to have to do that all over again.
