Registering/unregseting Windows file associations with Delphi

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/05/02

As I need this one day: [WayBack] Just in case I need this again… >Free library DSiWin32 … now implements this as DSiRegisterUserFileAssoc and DSiUnregisterUserFileAssoc <… – Thomas Mueller (dummzeuch) – Google+

Note file has moved from WayBack: to [WayBack] OmniThreadLibrary/DSiWin32.pas at master · gabr42/OmniThreadLibrary · GitHub because Google code has shut down.

There still is [WayBack] Google Code Archive – Long-term storage for Google Code Project Hosting: gpdelphiunits, but maintenance is now part of [WayBack] GitHub – gabr42/OmniThreadLibrary: A simple and powerful multithreading library for Delphi

    That’s the pre-Vista, NT4 like or so to register a file association. You’d really need to properly register your application, the file type, and then tell to open a given file type with a given registered application.

    Probably there’s a reason why most Delphi developers I met today have gray hairs….
