Lower-cased ASSOCFILTER
« on: October 14, 2019, 07:22:04 am »
Is it possible to set a lower-cased ASSOCFILTER easily?

StarOffice, with installed WPS classes, sets its own ASSOCFILTER for some (but not all) of its file extensions. *.sdc, for example. But if an installer sets the same associations, then both *.sdc and *.SDC will appear as associations. The settings of the installer will be upper-cased. The same applies to typed associations. If you delete the lower-cased one and keep *.SDC, then *.sdc will reappear again after a reboot.

The practical solution is to not set the 5 upper-cased *.SD* ASSOCFILTERs, to end up with 5 lower-cased settings and 3 upper-cased settings, but I'm wondering if there's a way to lower-case specific new ASSOCFILTERs. So an installer can set all 8 ASSOCFILTERs, without having to delete 5 double entries afterwards. Unfortunately it's not as simple as finding a plain "sdc" in the WPS DLL and changing that to "SDC".
