Win7: wrong program associated with .pano files

by j_h_w » Thu Jan 15, 2015 7:59 pm

I am working on Windows 7, 64 bit.
Some weeks ago, I have updated from APG 3.0 to APG 3.7 and have made APG 3.7 the standard program to open APG-created .pano files (my .pano-files are located in the same directies as the image files).
Today I have de-installed APG 3.0, that had still been offered in parallel for use.
After that the following problem came up:

The APG-icon disappeared from the .pano file symbols, and there was no standard program offered for opening.
So I tried to change the standard program of .pano files again to APG 3.7.
After opening the file dialogue 'Properties', in 'open with' APG3.7 was not contained in the program symbol list;
instead I hade to search in directories and select in program dir 'Kolor/Autopano Giga 3.7' the executable AutopanoGiga_x64.exe.
After clicking Open & OK, the standard program was not APG 3.7, but Adobe Reader XI instead, for whatever reason.

When trying again, I constantly see:
AGP 3.7 is not accepted (i.e. selecting it is without effect), instead the standard program stays Adobe Reader.

(Note: when I directly call AGP 3.7 and then open a *.pano file from the internal file menue, it works; but this is not my indended workflow).

So my question:
What is the missing property, so that APG3.7 is not recognized as standard program to open APG created .pano files?
What can I do?

Perhaps try uninstalling APG, rebooting, reinstalling APG?

I followed your suggestion, and the procedure was successful.
Thanks a lot,
