Vista won't load .exe files!

So I just fixed mine, EXEs are loading correctly now. It was a few registry issues that just need to be changed.
1. Type command in the RUN dialog box to open Command Prompt

2. When Command Prompt is up, type cd \windows

3. Type regedit to open up the Registries.

4. Expand HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT and find the folder of .exe

5. Without expanding it, on the main .exe folder, Right-click (Default) and Modify. Change the Value Data to exefile

6. Now in the same HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT find the folder of exefile and Right-click (Default) and Modify. Change the Value Data to "%1" %*

7. Lastly expand exefile, expand shell, expand open, click on the command folder, Right-click (Default) and Modify. Change the Value Data to "%1" %*

8. Close Regedit and Restart the computer. When restarted, EXE files should not prompt you to choose a program to run it now and load correctly.

Solution no. 1. (DCP-110C / DCP-115C / DCP-120C / DCP-130C):

The proper reset code sequence to reset DCP printers without numeric keypad should be as follows:

1. press buttons Set, Menu, Mono Start one by one, followed by up arrow key four times. this should all be done as short a time as possible, around 3 seconds.

2. enter maintenance mode 80 by pressing the up/down arrow key and set key to select numbers 8 and 0

3. press up arrow key several times to get to the Purge item

4. enter 2, 7, 8 and 3 using arrow/set keys to reset the counter

5. press Stop/Exit key to go to root of maintenance mode

6. enter 9,9 to exit maintenance mode

Solution no. 2. (DCP-110C / DCP-115C / DCP-120C / DCP-130C):

Here's how...

1. Pres 'menu', 'mono start' then 'menu' one by one...

2. Press the arrow up or down to go to 'maintenance 80'.

3. Press 'mono start' several times to go to 'Purge'. Finding the PURGE will show some numeric value which is I assume the number of times the printer had cleaned.

4. Press 'arrow up' key and scroll for number "2" then press "set". Do the same for numbers 7, 8 and 3. After you have entered this combination, the purge numeric value will be reseted to 00000.

Solution no. 3. (for printers with numeric keypad):

Resetting purge counter on: MFC-620CN / MFC-420CN / MFC-410CN / MFC-210C and FAX-2440C:

1. Enter machine maintenance mode (on MFC-210C all four photo/copy/fax/scan lights flash in maintenance mode). Care is needed in maintenance mode, otherwise critical settings may be inadvertently corrupted.

FAX models with numerical keypads: Press the Menu/Set, *, 2, 8, 6 and 4 keys within two seconds. (if you fail to complete the correct key sequence within two seconds, press the Stop key to try again).

Other (non-FAX) models: Press the Menu/Set and Black Start keys. Next press the “up arrow” key four times to enter the maintenance mode.

2. Press the 8 then 0 keys in the initial stage of the maintenance mode to call up the machine's log information list (function code 80).

3. Press the Black Start key several times to scroll through the log information list to reach the purge counter. The purge counter is the 25th item in the list.

4. Press the 2, 7, 8, and 3 keys in this order to reset the purge count to zero.

5. Press the Stop/Exit key to return to the initial stage of the maintenance mode.

6. Press the 9 key twice to return to the standby state.
