Hi NightCabbage, sorry I don't really have any clue as to what's going on there. MoI isn't even running right then, that's just Windows Explorer doing that part.

You might try going to the UI in Windows Explorer under the Tools menu > Folder Options > "File Types" tab and see if setting it in that UI there makes any difference.

Otherwise, it is possible to edit the registry directly to set up the file association - to do that you go into the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT section of the registry under regedit.exe .

If I remember right, you need to set up a set of keys for shell > open > command under the .ai file entry in the registry, look under the entry for MoI.3DMFile.1 to see how that is set up, that's the one that the MoI installer sets up so that MoI is launched with .3dm files.

You kind of want to be careful messing with the registry though.
