You are running Win95? Go in and create new file type. Description of type. Two or three words to describe this file type. This entry if for the humans. The Computer doesn't care what this says. Fill out the rest of the form. It is very logical.
Under the actions box, click the "New" button. Another page will open. What action do you want to perform? Open?

Type that. then in the next box, browse to the exe which you are going to use to perform the action.
Apply Ok Close close

browser, but i dont really know,
I'll see how it goes

It seems the .djv extension is already in use.
By Deja'vu apparently.

Two days just to load a program.
Im in a bad way. I need a coffee.

well its in there.
it was already there.
it has DJVU and DJV as extensions.

But when i try to run the file (1926-38INDEX.DJV)
my PC complains that it has no program associated
with it for performing this action.

And it tells me to create an association etc, etc

What am i doing wrong?

I downloaded this program. I opened it and then dragged an image file into the window. Saved the file with a djvu extension. I then tried to open this same file. It wanted a file association. I used the right click while holding shift and then choosing Open with method. I browsed to the Install Folder and chose the exe. In my case here is the path. Yours will be different.
"D:\Program Files\LizardTech\DjVu Solo 3.1\DjVuSolo.exe

This is a program which lets you scan documents>> creating image files. You can also drag image files into the program window. I had a quick look. You can then publish these on the Web. This is a web publishing tool. Not just any old Graphics viewer. At least that's what I got out of a quick perusal of the program.

Scan any image or drag an image file into the program window. There is much more to it. However, it's late here. Have a look at the Help File. this appears to be a very nice program.

PS I scanned with AdAware. It's clean.

No. You are in fact viewing an image. Not a text file. When you scan a text file, it becomes a Graphic file.
Also, just as in Web Publishing ans HTML, you cannot have a space in the name of the path. This program will not be able to open My Documents, it will tell you it cannot open C:\MY
So this is not Irfanview. You are preparing for web publishing. No Spaces in the Name of your Files either. No My first try.djv'
You can have My_first_try.djv
