Using a "Regedit" kinda app i found what follows:

My Device\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT - this seems to be the place were all the relations are stored...

Here I foud almost all the file extensions used in my device, and some i didn't even knew about..

\.bmp has the fallowing keys:
Name - Data
Content type - Image/bmp
Default - bmpimage
PerceyvedType - image

This configuration seems to be common to almost all extensions keys....
After this I found this in the same root


and subs
\DefaultIcon - the file were the icon is
\Shell - contains sub keys
\Shellex - not common to all the keys i've looked into

Under \Shell we have..

and the string value

Name - value
Default - "Windows\IA_Zip.exe" "%1"

this is from the zip app...
the "%1" part seems to indicate that with the main app also the clicked file should open....

This info has not been tested and , being this a regestry issue , I advise to be carefull with your actions...

Hope this helped

thanks for your reply but that is not what i'm looking for. I want to be able to assign a program written by me to a button on the Axim(dell).
