Per Bug-O-Rama review, All View File buttons need to detect in the Windows registry, the associated application that allows viewing of .bmp files. If we are planning to implement this for .bmp files, then, are we planning to implement this for .gif files as well??? If so, most windows systems .gif file association is default to MS Internet Explorer. Netscape never gets associated with .gifs and the Netscape installer never makes this association. Should we talk to installer team and consider setting .gif association to Netscape?

I have created another function called OpenViewer which would detect the default application for a file depending on the extension. The only problem is that gifs are currently opened by IE. I would therefore suggest that we use the OpenViewer only for bmps in the ini file and for all the rest where we want association with our browser we use the OpenBrowser. The OpenBrowser will launch Netscape if it is there in the machine else it defaults to IE.
Reopening.... .gifs open with associated application .html open with associated application .txt open with associated application Viewing .bmp files opens the browser with a "Warning: There is a possible security hazard here." dialog. with Open it and Save it to disk options. .bmp files should open to associated application. My machine is configured with MSPaint associated to .bmp files.
Marking fixed. I have changed the ini files - gifs & html open with the browser and bmp open with the default application.
Reopening... After selecting View File on any .bmp in the wizard the following dialog appears: Paint - D:\Program.bmp was not found I installed CCK to D:\Program Files\Netscape\cck\
Marking fixed Updated the inifiles to call this function
