File associations
« on: September 14, 2016, 06:04:25 pm »
Windows 7, RC1.

After installing RC1, I uninstalled 2 or 3 old beta versions.

Today when I double-clicked a VPW file from Explorer, it prompted me for which application to use to open it - even though Explorer listed the "Type" as Slickedit.

Then in "Open With", I used "Browse" to find the RC1 version of VS.exe.
Even though I found it, Explorer wouldn't accept it - no error, it just wouldn't work.

From Tools > Options > File Options > Associate File Types I removed the association for VPW, then put it back, and now things work as they should.

Seems like uninstallation does something bad.
