Problem opening files with extension .ini RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am facing a strange problem.
    Whenever I try to open any file with extension ".ini" (either by double clicking or open with Notepad), I following messege is displayed.
    "The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect"

    Same file opens if I open it using wordpad.

    The problem is occuring with all ".ini" files. If I create a text file, type something and save it with extension .ini, I cant open it by double clicking or by right click - open with - notepad.

    Please help to solve this problem.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Try to open the file manually......Open the notepad...then browse your file and open it.

  • but my query is, WHY it cant open by "double clicking" or by "right click - Open with - Notepad"
    Also if I select Notepad and check checkbox - "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file", files with extension .ini do not open
