Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 119164] File extension association doesn't work after I install other ODF editor and then upgrade to AOO 3.4
Date Thu, 05 Apr 2012 01:40:10 GMT

--- Comment #5 from zhao xia <> 2012-04-05 01:40:10 UTC ---
I am working on r1303653 English full install and then install Simplified
Chinese language package and French language package. As I described in issue,
I install OOo 3.3.0 first, this time the file extension association will be
OOo, means files with ODF file format will be opened by OOo 3.3 if I double
click them. Then I install Symphony, now, the ODF file will be opened by
Symphony by default. And then I upgrade to AOO 3.4 r1303653, here the ODF file
association should back to AOO, means the files with ODF file extension should
be opened by AOO if I double click them.

This issue nothing with language package, I uninstall these language packages
and check, same problem.
