Fix EXE File Association
Fix EXE File Association is a small-sized and portable application that repairs EXE registry association issues, allowing the computer to run executable files normally again.
Since installation is not a prerequisite, you can simply drop the file somewhere on the hard disk and click it to run.
It is also possible to save Fix EXE File Association to a USB flash disk or similar storage unit, in order to run it on any machine with minimum effort.
What's important to keep in mind is that no additional entries are inserted into the Windows registry, and Fix EXE File Association does not create other files on the hard disk, leaving it clean after removal.
All you have to do is click the file to trigger the EXE association fix-up in the registry. The application immediately carries the task and asks the user to restart the computer to apply the new changes. There are no other options available.
No error dialogs were shown in our tests, and the app did not cause the OS to hang or crash. We have not come across any problems. However, Fix EXE File Association has not been updated for a very long time, and it is not compatible with newer operating systems.
