Issue with File Extensions
I have an ism with few files and some executables.
It has a merge module which contains odbc entries and some normal non-executable files.
The ism contains file extensions in both tables
and in registries,only progid I have shown below.
When I deleted the entries in Registries so as to remove redundancy, after installation whenever I click on the associated files, it is going to self heal everytime.
When I checked the root cause of self heal in event viewer, it is pointing to component in mergemodule and displays the error as those odbc registries are missing.But those are 64 bit registries and component also mentioned as 64 bit but windows installed tried to look in 32 bit hive and when I replicate the same in 32 bit registry(wow6432node) it is not going to self heal.
This self heal didn;t occur if I keep the file association registry keys.But If I remove them, it is checking for keys belonging to 64 bit component of mergemodule in 32 bit hive.
Can you suggest how to proceed.
