Dependecy file association - Hyperlink open failure RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a App-V 4.6 package of Access 2007 with a local installation of Office 2007 Standard. If a user opens a database file with a hyperlink to a xls file the file successfully opens in Excel 2007. If a user ties to open a hyperlink to a xlsx file they receive a error message 'No program is registered to open this file'. If the user opens the xlsx file from within Excel 2007 the file opens ok.

  • In your package check the file extension/classes keys in the virtual registry. It might be that one key has 'overwrite' as a property and this way 'hides' locally installed keys.

  • Hello,

    If the user double-clicks a XLSX-file on the desktop - does that open in Excel?

    If it doesn't - you need to create the file type association

  • Hi Yes it opens a xlsx file ok from the desktop. It just does not open from a hyperlink within the App-V package of Access 2007. It will however open a xls file from a hyperlink.
