Another Attempt

PFA (PortableFileAssociator) works, but I prefer "eXpresso" (previously known as "CAFE Mod")
I'd recommend you try them both and choose which you prefer.

I'll be back, I promise.

So that it's to use it on my Pc I will install the PC version instead of using portable app ! No matter.

It's just strange that it had worked with OoO portable and not with LibrO !

Thanks for help, and to excuse my poor english.
