I don't know how this happened, but most of the file types that PM View can read are no longer associated with PM View. Some are now associated with IE5 and some with nothing. Is there any easy way to restore these associations?

Just run the installer once again (i.e. reinstall) and everything should be okay. Reinstalling is completely safe and your customized PMView settings will be preserved.

Greetings:

In response to this problem, I've written a VERY small program (16k) that restores all associations to PMView. I've only tested it with NT 4.0. I'd be interested to see if it worked under 9x/2000/XP.

IE users can "Run Program From This Location" while Opera and Netscape/Mozilla users will have to save the file somewhere (your desktop is a good place) and then run it.

It's a free program which requires NO install or support DLLs. One note, though. You MUST have PMView installed before running the program, or it will mess up current file associations.
