Can't set PE10 as default opener for .png files (XP)

Nov 15, 2012 11:11 PM

With .psd files I can right-click -> Open With -> Choose Program and see a list of programs that I can set as the default for opening this type of file. The list includes PE4, PE7 and PE10. With .jpeg files it only shows PE4 and PE7, and with .png files it only shows PE4.  If I browse to the program I want (say the PE10 editor .exe file) and select it with double-click or 'open', the choice is ignored and PE4 remains selected in the Choose Program window.


Obviously, all 3 versions can read and write all 3 types of file - so what's happening here?  I'm guessing this is a Windows issue, but I thought I'd ask in case there's a setting in PE that's stopping them from being visible.


PE4, PE7, PE10

    Are you sure that in the Choose Program dialog box "Always use the selected program to open such kind of file" is selected.
