comment PowerShell script to Associate applications in Windows 8 (possibly employing ftype / assoc)
Nothing happens really. It's almost as if association with Metro ignores all of this, which makes me think that a different process is controlling these associations in Windows 8. Hence, probably PowerShell would be the way to do it. By default, all file types are associated with the Metro apps, so avi with Video, mp3 with Music, pdf with Reader etc. Those Metro apps are ok, but very visual and limited in functionality compared to the Desktop equivalent. It would be very useful to bulk re-associate the many file types to the Desktop equivalent apps in a single script action.

Yes, this no longer works on Windows 8. Absolutely agree, I don't want to reinvent the wheel, but it doesn't work anymore, which was the main reason that I've posted this. Every possible file type has been associated with Metro apps by default, and it is a lot of work to alter that, and I honestly think that a lot of people will benefit from a good method to re-associate those items quickly to the Desktop apps when not working on a Metro tablet PC. Definitely using the ftype/assoc scripts that I've built in the past have saved a great deal of hassle when working with Windows 7 / Vista.

comment Cannot Compile .CS code in VS 2010
Thanks. I will check SnippetCompiler sounds good. A solution seems a lot of complexity for a simple Hello World app. VS could be for both big-scale solutions and for console apps that do not require the rigidity of a full "solution". Instead just a .cs file, using VS as the fantastic IDE that it is, and compile a .cs to an .exe. I just don't get why Microsoft won't allow such an obvious and useful format (in addition to the full-scale "solution" system). dumbfounded by the wasted opportunity. if anyone knows a way to use C# in a script-like way like that would be appreciated ?
