Description Olaf Felka 2005-07-05 10:48:55 UTC
Now we are looking for an existing registry entry for .xls or .ppt. No matter if
it is registered to an application or not. For the user at his frontend 'Folder
Options' doesn't know what's going on, he can only see that there is no
application registered for this mimetype. Installation should detect whether
there   is a) an entry for this mimetype and b) is there an application
registered for this mimetype and c) does this application exist.

I think this issue is only good for a 'plan B'. The prefered solution should be
to assign mimetypes somewhere in Tools Options.

would be nice if a user could change the associations in tools -> options not
only for *.doc, *.xls, *.pps but also for older formats like *.sdw, *.sxw ... so
he can decide which program to use for ...
