Default Can't open .n64 files directly

Hello, my problem is that I've tried setting .z64 files to be automatically ran by PJ64 1.6 when I open them. However, when I try to open the files, Project64 starts up with a black screen, then gives the error "Attempt to open file failed." I've tried setting the shell integration to recognize .z64 files but it still doesn't work. Can anyone help me with this?

There's been lots of threads/requests/whatnot on this, actually, and from what I remember there's not really a solution to it. A nice search might say differently, though.

Personally I don't get what's wrong with just opening via emulator :L

Well I don't know how I got it to work, but it worked. I wasn't that interested enough to keep the functionality though.

If you get that message just try Open With, explicitly choosing Project64, or drag-and-drop the ROM file in Windows Explorer over the Project64 exe, etc., must be some sort of file access issue I guess.

dunno, haven't tried it in months

I remember putting Project64 on my flash drive, and this happened a lot. Not much of a problem, if i recall.

error, shell integration
