Hi!  I have a Windows 10 64-bit laptop and made some file associations with=
regedt32.exe and have a problem: when I right-click .prg files which have =
the associations and click a desired operation, a window pops up and asks h=
ow I want to open the file.  I don't want that. I want to open it in a cert=
ain way just this once.  Following are registry dumps of one offending file=
