File icon and association missing 0.20

Post by fr33cadtom »

Here is the version information. It is running on Windows 10.

OS: Windows 10 Version 2009
Word size of FreeCAD: 64-bit
Version: 0.20.29177 (Git)
Build type: Release
Branch: releases/FreeCAD-0-20
Hash: 68e337670e227889217652ddac593c93b5e8dc94
Python 3.8.10, Qt 5.15.2, Coin 4.0.1, Vtk 8.2.0, OCC 7.6.2
Locale: English/United States (en_US)
Installed mods:
* A2plus 0.4.56a
* Assembly4 0.12.0
* CubeMenu
* fasteners 0.3.45
* fcgear 1.0.0
* Pyramids-and-Polyhedrons
* ThreadProfile 1.81.0

After installing 0.20 and removing 0.19, the file associations broke. I have tried using the Control Panel to associate the file extension with the FreeCAD.exe in the C:\Program Files\FreeCAD 0.20\bin directory but that did not work. Also when I open freeCad the Start screen used to show the redF and Gaer symbol for each of the historical files. that doesn't happen either.

Do I need to reinstall?

Do you mean the icons of the *.FCStd files or the program itself? Here the program icon now looks like this:
