    Fireworks not listed in Open With in Vista

      can't get jpgs to Associate with Fireworks CS3 in Vista - if i select "Choose Default Program" and browse to Fireworks.exe it still won't show up in the dialog. also doesn't appear in Open With in the Context menu...

      in the Default Programs option in Control Panel it's the same issue.

      Anybody?

          Yes, I had that same problem.
          Note: I run CS3 on Windows Vista x64 and therefore the prgrams are placed in Program Files (x64)

          I made a textfile and put the following text in it:

          <code>
          Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

          [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell]


          [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\Open with Fireworks CS3]

          [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\Open with Fireworks CS3\command]
          @=C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Fireworks CS3\Fireworks.exe %1

          [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\Open with Dreamweaver]

          [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\Open with Dreamweaver\Command]
          @=C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Dreamweaver CS3\Dreamweaver.exe %1

          [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\Open with Photoshop CS3]

          [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\Open with Photoshop CS3\command]
          @=C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS3\Photoshop.exe %1

          </code>

          Make sure you put in the proper map name for programs if needed.

          Save this file and rename the extension from .txt to .reg. Than double clik the reg file and your registry will be updated with the above info. After that you will find three more options in the context menu.
          Hope this helps.

                Ran into the same problem on XP, and didn't find much in the way of answers here or elsewhere. However, I spent some time playing with rodeto's reg file and made it into an apparently XP friendly version. Hopefully this will help anyone else who runs into this issue!

                I don't know about Vista, but the trick for getting it to work in XP was adding the quotes around the path, and adding the double slash marks. Apparently a single slash is used for special characters like Tab and LF, so double slash means "Actual Single Slash" :) That and also changing the path to the appropriate XP Program Files location.

                Good luck to anyone else who has been annoyed by this CS3 weirdness!
