Problems with TIF Interaction between TRIM 6.2 & imaging (including Paint) applications

Has anyone had issues opening up TRIM stored Tif scanned images with Microsoft Document Imaging? - Instead of opening in MS Document Imaging (which I've associated  on my machine with MS Document Imaging, and have ticked 'open in associated application in the TRIM Viewer settings) , its opening up in MS Paint.  Opening a Tif outside of TRIM from the desktop works fine.

We have TRIM version 6.22 with Office 2007 / Vista

This is still due to the Windows File Type associations.

Remember that there are two ways to open a file, either 'View' or 'Edit'.

You likely have the Windows Associations only configured for 'View' so when you open from your desktop, it opens in the expected application, but when launching from TRIM, it actaully opens the file with the 'Edit' associations and will probably have a different application associated.

 

Go to the Windows File Type associations and you'll need to edit the advanced settings for that file type and ensure you have the 'Edit' command associated with the correct application too.
