I had a client come across this error message while trying to click on a link in Outlook & wouldn’t open the webpage in IE.
It is a known issue – http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=310049
However by trying all methods, including “Microsoft Fix it” it still failed to resolve the problem!
To fix the issue I had to create the missing Registry Key “.html” and Default String “htmlfile”
WARNING: Be very careful – serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly.
As usual – here at Waldon – we will be more than happy to resolve this problem, and any other issues that you may have, by either remote assistance or by an onsite visit.
