I have tried twice over a period of 8 months to get Microsoft technical support to solve this problem only ending up with "try re-installing or running a repair install" or "sorry, we can't fix this". The problem is this. Within several different programs in which there is an imbedded link to a website for help or for a download or for getting further information of some sort, when I click on the link I get the following error message:
"This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Set Associations control panel."
It seems like this problem must have a common cause. If I knew what the file extension was for this command and if I knew what the executable applet was then maybe I could fix this myself. But I have no idea. I have tried to search for a solution and even though there are many reports of this kind of issue, I haven't been able to find a solution that exactly fit my problem. It seems like this should be a simple fix for someone who really knows Vista (Home Premium).
Can anyone help?
