RV can open a wide variety of file formats, and on Windows, using the
exe installation, it registers a large number of file types that RV can
If you want tighter control around the file types RV can handle, you can download the
zip portable install of RV and register your
open with registry entries manually. To grab the zip installation, you can find it at www.tweaksoftware.com/downloads
Once you unpack the install, you will find a number of
.reg files in the
etc directory. These can be used to register the file associations and
rvlink uri handler.
To register your own custom set of files to be handled by RV, edit the
openwith.reg file. At the top you will see it has the path to RV, edit this if you have installed RV in a different location. Below you will find all the various file types, delete (or add) any of those in the list. Once you’ve done that, save the
openwith.reg file and double-click it.
