it seems that you have a problem with extensions association, please check the registry

I have associated .bmp and .mts files with XnView MP trough windows "Open With" menu but i have generic orange xnview logo showing for .bmp files.

What should i look for in registry,. related to XnView settings or windows settings?

For XnView i am not using registry only .ini files.

Check for what exactly...

I deleted that key HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.bmp it did not help, downloaded reset REG file (attached) it also did not help.

I am able to open like this just fine C:\Portable\XnViewMP\xnviewmp.exe "C:\Users\User\Downloads\logo black.bmp", however when double click in Windows Explorer it wont open.
