Well, depending on the file's "real type" and the mechanism used to try 
to "open" it, not everything under Windows is extension based.  Try 
renaming any OLE2 format "compound document" type to an extension that 
is not registered then double-click it and see what happens.  There are 
also even ways to get "mis-extensioned" PEs to load and execute under 
some falvours of Windows.
