    I'm using W7 Home Premium 32 bit. I can not open Google SketchUp by double clicking on a *.skp file. Trying to set the default program with "Open with...", Default Programs, right click -> Properties, Control Panel, etc - nothing works. I did get something to work. If I logon as a different user, I get the expected result. I took this a step further and disabled UAC, but that did not change the behavior - still a problem with my normal account and a different account works. Now my normal account is an Administrator account, so I'm stumped since this version of W7 doesn't seem to have any UAC tools. Oh well, I can change my account picture:D...

    Any suggestions on how to trace this? Any registry tweaks??
