    What does unassociate mean? Presently .epub files are not associated with any program, so how is unassociating even possible? I s'pose I'm displaying monumental ignorance by asking.
    I did convince Firefox to open my epub document by simply clicking on it, but that association doesn't seem to stick. I have to select that program after each rebooting by going to my Program Files directory. However, I did just change from 32-bit Firefox to 64-bit, and so this morning I was presented with the option of selecting Firefox from Program Files (x86).
    Jona,

    Unassociate is to have a file type not set to open with any app by default.

    .epub files are an eBook file. If you like, you could use the Windows version of the Adobe Digital Editions program below to view them.

    broken REG association


    The instructions presume the *.reg association is working. You might like to add a sentence on what do to if it is broken.

    Hello @Ahari, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    I have added "diagcab" to OPTION TWO to restore its default association and hopefully help.
