Default text editor

I had my default .txt editor set to RJ on my Windows 7 laptop. I installed the latest RJ Texted v10, 64bit and now that association is gone I tried to reset it, but windows doesnt seem to recognize it.

I uninstalled and rebooted Windows. Then re-installed v10 64bit and rebooted again. I then associated .txt files to it as the default. It stuck this time.

But, when I double click any .txt file to open it... nothing happens.


Any clues as to what is going on?

When you right click on a file in Windows Explorer and choose "Properties", is RJ TE indicated as default program for *.txt files? Does this situation pertain only to *.txt files?

Try looking in the registry (HKLM and HKCU) for "C:\Program Files (x86)\RJ TextEd\TextEd.exe" and replace all occurrences with "C:\Program Files\RJ TextEd\TextEd.exe"

That worked beautifully! Thanks vha! I did not even think that the installer didn't take out the x86 keys in the registry.

It is not working properly on my device. It is showing Windows 10 Preparing Automatic Repair Error again and again after updating the device. How can I fix it?
