Issue



Extension table entry references a MIME type in the MIME_ column. The MIME table must have that same MIME type defined and reference that same extension in the Extension_ column. This is called a “reciprocal reference.”

Cause



This error is caused when the referenced MIME type is already defined on the machine. Adding the associated entry into the MIME table will cause the application to remove the MIME type during uninstall, which can break previous associations.

Solution



Find and delete the offending entry. Usually it is the entry in the “MIME_” column in the extension table. The error has been known to appear in the opposite form, where you will need to delete a row from the MIME table, but that is very rare.
