When trying to print a copy of portfolio manager(MSN Money}, I get the following error:
"This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folder option control panel".
I don't understand this about "creating an association".
I'm the only user with access to this home computer.
An e-mail answer from MSN suggested creating a new user account, which I did, having to put in all the new settings,etc.
After this, I can now print the portfolio copy with no problem. However, I don't follow why I should have to have another user account when I'm the only user with access to this computer as administrator.
Does anyone have any clues as to what the issue is that causes this error message or how to create an association in the Folder option control panel?

There is no association that should be made for printing anything. It sounds like there is already an association in existence that shouldn't be there. When exactly do you receive this message? Is it immediately after clicking on "Print"?

Your question was: when does this error message occur.
As soon as I click on print, I get the message: "this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action.Create an association in the Folder options control panel."
This occurs when using Internet Eplorer 7 as browser.
