hello i am having a problem with a login script on my laptop that is set to map network drives... somehow the batch file has become associated with notepad.. so whenever i run it it just opens in notepad rather than running and mapping the drives. i checked explorer file associations in folder options and there wasnt one for batch files, and i checked the properties for an "open with" option and that wasnt there either... i was wondering if its in a special location since its a dos command, or if im just missing something here.... any help is very much appreciated :whistling:

That site uses .reg files to fix all the file associations. Someone I am trying to help gets this same problem with .reg files too. Is there a .exe fix or does he need to go into the registry and input the values manually?

I thought the creator of that site would know a .reg fix would require a file that isn't a .reg hehe
