.VIB files lost Windows shell integration

Post by m.novelli » Sep 26, 2016 8:10 am

Hi guys, I've lost the Windows Shell integration with .VBK and .VIB files on a Windows 2012 R2 Server, double-clicking the files ask me what program to use to open them. Can you help me? I've already tried with some Veeam executables without luck

Thanks!

Hi Marco, try Veeam.Backup.Launcher.exe.

Should be under C:\Program Files\Common Files\Veeam\Backup and Replication.

Got it! Unfortunately it does not work, the icon of .VIB changed but nothing happens with double-click

I'm not sure it should work for VIB. Try VBK or VBM.

Hope this helps, be sure to change the paths in the .reg file with notepad before hand, and use it at your own risk: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/335 ... rk-vib.reg
