    calling on registry pro's once again


    Im at a loss at this point.

    Ive created a reg file that works on 2 of my pc's, but wont work on the 3rd.

    works on both desktops. laptop isnt having it. never ceases to amaze me that 3 pc's i keep in almost complete parity can still have issues like this. I mean, i go through the trouble of doing so to INTENTIONALLY avoid things like this lol.

    any idea why that would be the case?

    means its not working on the laptop in the sense that the strings import, I can see them. but right clicking on a .bash script presents no edit option.

    You do know that you can post code in TenForums?

    Code:
    All you have to do is paste the contents into your post, select them, click on the hash icon [the # icon] in the editing toolbar.

    I think you'll get more useful responses if people can see what you're talking about straightaway.

    What was the original state of those Registry keys and of your bash & notepad++ installations in this computer compared to the other computers to which you refer?

    Hi again, sorry had to step out for a bit.

    The notepad++ installations on all 3 pc's are the same directory. The laptop is mbr and not gpt, thats the only difference i can think of. and its on an insider ring as opposed to standard.

    the original state has no edit option for bash scripts, hence the addition.

    i know its gotta be something small thats gonna be a facepalm. grrr
