    File Association woes

    tompeer1
      I have the opposite problem to most people in that having installed version 8 I *cannot* associate .png files or others with Fireworks. If I go to "open with" Fireworks is not an option. If go via control panel->file types->Advanced and select the executable it just isn't saved.

      Also Source Safe no longer opens any Adobe files in the correct applications - include *.cfm (home site), *.css (dreamweaver)

      Anyone got any ideas?

          Don't you get an option to choose programme here - you should be able to
          browse to the FW exe and choose always use the selected programme....
          checkbox.

            A reinstall of Fireworks should fix it up.
