Cant get Dreamweaver as default in XP

  benchman 18:52 29 Jul 2003

I?d be grateful for help with the following:
The problem is setting the default program for web authoring with both FrontPage versus Dreamweaver MX (part of Macromedia MC) on the computer. I want Dreamweaver to be the default.
I have Windows XP Pro
2.6Gb CPU AMD Athlon
40Gb Hard Drive
512Mb RAM
I have recently upgraded motherboard and CPU.
Macromedia MX was installed before the upgrade with no problems in opening it from Windows Explorer. When I first opened D-MX after the upgrade it opened in Internet Explorer.So find Sites file in Widows Explorer, right click a file, click properties and ?open with.....?
The drop down recommends files to use are amongst others, Fireworks, Internet Explorer, FrontPage etc. No Dreamweaver MX. ?Other programs? include Flash and Flash Player etc.
So click on Browse, C, Programmes, Macromedia, Dreamweaver Mx & Dreamweaver.exe. This takes you straight back to ?open with...?
I tried uninstalling FrontPage but it refused to open with Dreamweaver and demanded FrontPage!
P S My first go at getting help ended in deleting the answers from two kind people who replied to my query. My apologies.

Shouldn't this thread be in the WebDesign forum???

No, this thread shouldn't be in the webdesign forum becuase it isn't about webdesign.

I'm not totally sure, but have you tried reinstalling Dreamweaver? and then see if windows will recognise it in the 'open with...' list.

This link tells you how to set DW as the default HTML editor within internet Explorer which is probably what you need.
