Can any kind person post a brief run-down of what is required to register a
an extension to an app, so that double-clicking documents with that
extension in the Windows explorer launches the appropriate app?  I assume
that (at least from Windows 98 on) this is done by writing/modifying keys in
the registry - but which and what?  Are there any gotchas to do with
multiple users or Administrator issues in WinXP etc?
