Actually I found the solution...
The problem was:
Modify the following Registry value:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile\shell\open\command

and change

"C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\winsvrc.exe "%1" %*

to

"%1" %*

For clarity, these seven characters are the following: double quote, percent sign, the numeral one, double quote, space, percent sign, and asterisk. Don't forget the space.




Thanks
