File association problem

Discussion created by Dave Lowry on Sep 27, 2008
Can anyone help solve a file association problem that occurred after I reinstalled SW2008, SP4.0. Although I followed the relatively simple rules for associating a .stp file with SW, when I make hte "last click" onto the SW log in the "Browse" area, VISTA just kicks back to the original association window without making any changes. The ONLY association changes that Vista will permit apparently are to programs listed in the "Other programs section" ... immediately below the "Preferred programs" section.

I have already engaged Microsoft Help support to no avail as well. They claim it must be a SW problem of "not acting properly".

Can anyone provide suggestions to resolve?
