Is that a problem? Why wouldn't you want the more full-featured version to open?
See the bottom section of this page for instructions on setting which edition of Cinema 4D is used for various features:
Hey Todd, Thanks for your response. I built original C4D file from Lite version, the problem is when AFX forces it to open in the full version, AFX or C4D (full version) won't let me open it back up in AFX.
I originally built the C4D file from the lite version and I was able to go back and forth between AFX and C4D Lite prior to this issue.
Is there a solution for having it open back up in the Lite version? I tried opening C4D Lite straight from the application and no luck in opening. The icon bounces and just shuts down.
My Ae CC is up to date as well.

See my previous response. I pointed to a page with instructions for doing that.
