Runtime Extension USR

This topic is 5906 days old. Please don't post here. Open a new topic instead.

Recently I installed Visual Studio.NET. I have now found that the runtime files with the FileMaker standard USR extension have a conflict with SQL User Script files. (At least that is what their icons now show.)

If I try to bind solutions with the USR ext. then I get an error stating that the extesion is used by Windows and won't let me do it.

1. Anyone else find this problem? This is going to cause some issues in upgrades for some clients.

2. Where does one go to find safe extensions?

Hi Roger, i find this to be a good resource on file extensions:


If you have existing USR files that you can't open directly because of this conflict, you could create a shortcut with the target:

"C:Program FilesFileMaker Pro 6FileMaker Pro.exe" C:directoryfile.usr

And if you want some REAL fun, look into changing the registry keys involved. Open regedit and search for USR; anything you find under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT will pertain to this issue. But DON'T do this unless you're completely comfortable editing the registry, cause you can really mess things up if you're not careful. And please don't blame anything on me; you're on your own, bud! smile.gif
