Renoise has for some reason lost the file association for xrns file. I know how this is usually set but it refuses to take it through the usual Windows method of doing so. Have gone into Folder Options - File Types and fully deleted the file then tried again no joy. When I browse to the Renoise folder and try and use Renoise.exe it does not add to the list. Other programs do and I have now added a couple of junk files (such as the Renoise uninstaller) making sure Windows was at least letting me change file associations to other program files that are not in the list and that works just fine.
Any ideas what may of caused this and how to cure it?
I recently uninstalled some old version of Renoise, while having a newer version installed - and this caused the uninstaller to unregister all Renoise filetypes, and clear my personal settings (keyboard shortcuts etc.). Be warned!!
This should never happen - I doubt this was the problem. The installer does not touch any of “your” preferences files. It only takes care about installing the stuff to the “Program Files” folder and doing the file associations.
Uninstall, install again should do for now as well, but something like a (re)register file types for sure does not hurt to have.
