    Hello,

    In Default Programs,
    When I select 'Associate a file type or protocol with a program'.
    When I select an extention and click the Change Program button,
    the program I want is not on the list, So I select [Browse] and select the program I want then nothing happens.
    How do I add a program to the list ?

    You say you can find the program listing when you browse for it? You then select it and use open, then go back to the first window and make sure the "always Use" checkbox is checked?

    After you do that, double clicking a file with that extension does not open your selected program?

    Any chance you could tell us what extension you are modifying and what program you want to use with it?

    for the first part yes, but noting happens.

    The extentions are .e, .ex, .exw. they are used for the Euphoria programing lanuage.

    The program I am trying to associate is Mike's Editor.exe.
