Bug report? App not showing up in New Association

Post by *marczellm » 2018-04-15, 10:51 UTC

I don't know if this is a bug in TC or in the other app. The other app is MuseScore Songbook, and it can open .mscz files.

By default, Total Commander opens .mscz files itself, by showing the contents of the zip archive the file actually is. I want to configure TC to open .mscz files in MuseScore, but if I try to create an internal association, the Songbook app does not show up in the list of available apps. Please help.

On Android, each app defines via a "manifest" resource which file types it supports. Apparently MuseScore doesn't define .mscz as a supported format.

In order to pick an app from the list, the app has to support the "VIEW" action. Total Commander lists all apps which support "VIEW". If the app only suports the "MAIN" action, it will appear in the launcher, but will probably not support any parameters.
