Hello! I have a similar problem to the one listed here, but the question was not answered despite the post being closed.
I know how to associate a file in Windows 7. I have gone to Start Menu > Default Programs > Associate a File Type or Protocol with a Program, selected .doc, clicked Change Program, selected Browse, and drilled down to the swriter.exe file in C:\Program Files (x86)\LibreOffice 3.6\program . I clicked Open.
The problem is that nothing happens when I do this. No association is made - Writer doesn’t show up in the list of Recommended Programs in the Open With window.
Can anyone tell me a way of making the association work (I’ve also tried the right-click > Open with method - same problem), or is this something that will be fixed in a future version of LibreOffice? Thanks!
