jo-82 Explorer New->Textfile gone after NFOPad-Installation 2009-08-30 11:41:04
I installed the latest NFOPad Version 1.55 lately, and wondered why the Textfile-Entry from the new file contextmenu disappeared.
The Problem lies in the behaviour how NFOPad registers the Filetype "txt":

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.txt]
@="NFOPad"
"PerceivedType"="text"
"Content Type"="text/plain"

But @="NFOPad" should be @="txtfile".

When changed back to "txtfile", the Textfile entry on the New-contetxmenu reappears, at least after a log-off and log-on. After this, the txt-file is still bound to NFOPad.

I could reproduce this on a fresh XP Pro, Win 7 RC and Win 7 RTM. Please change this in upcoming versions.

PS: Keep up the great work on NFOPad, it's the best scene-file reader / editor i seen so far.

Thanks for your feedback.
Using the "txtfile" entry will not work unless you also change the "txtfile" key. But Windows gets a little cranky sometimes when you do this and seems to change it back. So that's not a good solution. I will however take a look at this for the next version.

Thanks, i'm looking forward to it.
