I added the Key
with String Extension set to .sav in the registry in
and then the file open dialog shows the .sav files also when the filter „Data and Syntax“
is applied. So the problem could be fixed on Windows 7 by adding this
key to the registry. See
The .zsav file is always shown because there is an explicit search for this
extension in the filter setup. See:
Only the .sav files and .por files are searched via mime type.
