MindGenius Map Formats and SharePoint

You can configure SharePoint to recognize any file format (extension) you like, e.g. Version 2-3 (.mgmf), Version 4+ (.mgmx) and even template files (.mgmt and .mgtx).

To Register MindGenius File Extensions:

  1. Log in to your SharePoint server with an administrator-level account, or another account with sufficient access to edit SharePoint configuration files.
  2. Locate the file “DOCICON.xml”. This is normally found in ‘C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\XML.
  3. Open the “DOCICON.xml” file in a text editor.
  4. Insert the following lines to the <ByExtension> section:
    1. <Mapping Key=”mgmf” Value=”mindgenius.png” />
    2. <Mapping Key=”mgmx” Value=”mindgenius.png” />
  5. Save the “DOCICON.xml” file and close the text editor.
