RegistryFileTypeMBS class

Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Console & Web iOS
class Windows Registry MBS Win Plugin No Yes No Yes, Windows only No
Function: An easy way to register an document icon for Windows.
You set up the properties of this class and than you call create.
I suggest that you do it like QuickTime or Winzip. Ask the user on first run if he want's your application to register its file types.
And also provide two buttons in the Preferencesdialog to register or unregister the types.

This class works on Windows 7 only if you run the app as administrator.

This function may fail to run if permissions are denied.
Or it may only affect the shadow registry used by Windows to protect itself from having unauthorized apps editing the real registry.
