Opera 12.14 How to change the "open with " dialogue

  • I know how to navigate to the standard_menu toolbar, and it works now pointing to a portable version of a chrome derivative.

    Include, Internal Frame
    Include, Internal Document Background
    Item, "Open in Pesla"=Execute program, "C:\Documents and Settings\User\My Documents\Portable Apps\IronPortable\IronPortable.exe", "%u",,"Iron"

    However, I want to change it to a program in a different section (Standard installation) and substituting the new local address doesn't seem to work.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Include, Internal Frame
    Include, Internal Document Background
    Item, "Open in Pesla"=Execute program, "C:\Program Files\SRWare Iron\iron.exe", "%u",,"Iron"

    Could someone look at my syntax and see what I am doing wrong?

  • Try putting inverted commas before "Execute" and at the very end.
    :-)

  • Still having trouble.

    So this is the original.

    Item, "Open in Pesla"=Execute program, "C:\Documents and Settings\User\My Documents\Portable Apps\IronPortable\IronPortable.exe", "%u",,"Iron"

    This is what I tried. and it still doesn't work.

    Could you copy and may insert these commas, because what I am doing is not working.

    Item, "Open in Pesla"=Execute program, "C:\Program Files\SRWare Iron\iron.exe", "%u",,"Iron"

  • He was suggesting you quote the entire right side - it really shouldn't matter, but can't hurt.

    Are you sure that is the right path for Iron?

  • Yes, I'm pretty sure.

    I've even gone as far to create a shortcut to get the syntax right.

    I'll try this as a modification. maybe remove the quotes around the path....

  • If you use the old school DOS names in the path you shouldn't need quotes.
    They're only needed because there are spaces in the path.
    I don't know what OS you're using, it may not work on Windows 7/8, but on XP this should work.
