We have a small percentage of computers where the file association doesn't work! The file association exists within Windows (File Types), but for some reason nothing happens.

The solution is to uncheck the 'Use DDE', then magically everything works. Running a repair (Add/Remove Programs...Repair) also seems to fix things.

This problem is worrisome, for I have a major release going out soon. The question is; why does this file assciation work on most targets, but not all...I've tested this and cannot replicate, but know that this error has occured on clean Windows XP SP2 machines.

This file association is created from within the Component (Advanced Settings\File Types).
