File Association problem in Win 2000

By bobzien ·
I need to associate a .syc file to a .exe file on a Win 2000 desktop. When I enter the file name in the 'open with' dialog and check the 'always use this program to open these files' it opens correctly. However, on subsequent attempts the association is gone. It works the first time only. In effect, the file association isn't happening. I have a second Win 200 machine where this works just fine. The machines are identical. Win 2000 is at build 2195. I appreciate any help.

I would associate the file by going through control panel, folder options and file types. See if it takes the association that way

I had to login as administrator to get it to work.
