    Merge is only available if you are logged on as an Administrator account. If you log on as a regular account, it will not show. Needs Admin privileges. Just mention this in case you are logged on as a regular account.

    Hello kitpzyxmsir, :)

    Double check in Default Programs to make sure that the .reg file extension has its Current Default program set as Registry Editor (C:\Windows\regedit.exe). Afterwards, try merging the .reg file again.

    Thanks to all for your good advice.

    The fact is, when philc43 posted the link to those REG file association fixes, it rang a bell.

    I already had them, but forgot.

    Thanks for waking me up. Ran the .reg file fix and it worked.
