I upgraded to 4.1.4 and the file extensions did not get associated. I did the usual methods of associating files (“Default Programs”) and LO did not appear in the list of available programs. I would browse to swriter.exe or soffice.exe and select it but it did not get established as the default. I eventually uninstalled completely LO redownloaded and reinstalled. Same problem.
I can start LO from the icon, navigate to the file I want to open and it opens correctly, but I cannot click on an .odt (or any other file) and get LO to open.
Without really knowing what I was looking for I browsed the Registry. swriter or soffice were listed as defaults for the different extensions and was listed as an available application. The only thing I considered odd was that soffice.bin was also listed as a default program.
I am now stuck and very frustrated. Thanks for any help I can get!
