This is the weirdest. Never had this problem before. I've used the application for years, installed it today in my new WinXP install. This is a utility that came with my Samsung V3 Digimax digicam called Digimax Viewer. The executable is:
<drive>\Program Files\Samsung Digimax Viewer 2.0\STImgBrowser.exe
The program is installed, the installation placed a shortcut on my desktop, it opens from there OK. I want it to be my default program for opening JPG files. I right click a JPG file and go Open With, check the box that says "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file." I navigate to the executable, and go Open, but it doesn't open the executable, doesn't change the file association.
The STImgBrowser.exe application has a companion program which is opened by clicking a button. That program has editing characteristics, e.g. cropping, enhancing brightness/contrast, red eye, etc. That program is available for association, but the viewing program, STImgBrowser.exe is not. I have uninstalled both the programs and reinstalled several times in accordance with the instructions presented by the installation program, including reboots. I don't know what to try next. The workaround is to open the image viewing program and navigate to a file via the File menu, but I'd like to just be able to double click a JPG and have it opened by the program, like it used to do. Please make a suggestion, thank you.
