Windows 7 - "There is no email program associated..." when syncing thunderbird
Posted on 2009-07-11
I am currently running Windows 7 RC1 64bit on my system. I have been using BirdieSync and Thunderbird with no problems whatsoever before Windows 7. Now, it works fine in Windows 7, I can synchronize and all that jazz without a hitch. The problem that I do have is that whenever I connect my SmartPhone via USB (or Bluetooth) I would get the following pop-up:
"There is no email program associated to perform the requested action. Please install an email program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel."
I would click 'ok', the box would go away, and then Thunderbird would launch and it would synchronize without a problem.
It is just annoying to have to navigate to the window and click 'ok' each and every time.
I did try setting the defaults in the Default Programs control panel and it is indeed set to Thunderbird. I had found a similar post to which there was a "solution" as to where I install Thunderbird first before installing WMDC. I had done that as well already, all to no avail, the no default email box still pops up. Any ideas how to get rid of this annoying message each time I connect the phone?
Thanks for any advice!
