Can you be more specific about the error?

You say your association is "fine", but it obviously isn't.

These are the registry keys that should be of interest (for per-machine install):

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.sav]
@="My.ProgID"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\My.ProgID\shell\Open\command]
@="Non-advertised clear text command line"
"command"=Illegible advertising garbage

You can aslo use the following commands from a command prompt for trouble-shooting:

Assoc .sav (returns associated ProgID)

Ftype My.ProgId (returns non-advertised commandline for given ProgID)

What were the contents of the registry keys I asked about?

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.sav]
@="??????"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\My.ProgID\shell\Open\command]
"command"=??????

What happens if you delete some registry keys as follows:

[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.sav]

[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\My.ProgID]

And then repair your application from the control panel?

Btw, do you have the following key in your registry?

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\.sav]

You don't need to search the registry since I'm giving you the exact path:

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\spss.datadoc\shell\Open\command]
"command"=?

Is the key there?

Try deleting the user file association:

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\.sav]

What happens then?

i also do have a current user classes\.sav key

Didn't you type the above sentence in an earlier post?

Try uninstalling your package, then reinstalling it using the following command line:

Msiexec /i whateveryourmsiiscalled.msi ALLUSERS=1 /qb

If it still doesn't work, create a new local user and try running the application as that user.

If it still doesn't work, try the same thing on another (clean) PC.
