Hi there,

I have turned all my .kext files into folders and now cannot open them properly. how do I change the association of them back so they can be opened with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]

thanks I have tried running the following in terminal, however that has not worked.


System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Versions/A/Support/lsregister -kill -r -domain local -domain system -domain user

I had tried to open a .kext file without installing [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], and the mac decided is was a folder.

Having a google around with people having done similar I cant seem to find a way to revert it.


Anyways I have successfully install Snow Leopard and applied patches and done software update to 10.6.8


My next Question is can any of the newer builds such as Mountain Lion run on this PC:

Dell Optiplex GX620 - 2gb RAM (I can upgrade to 4Gb if needed), Pentium D 2.8 CPU
