Setting Edrawings as default for opening *.slddrw files

I used to have it set in windows 7 to double click a Solidworks drawing and it would autmatically open in edrawings instead of solidworks.  It makes it a lot quicker to check simple stuff.  Since I just "upgraded" to 2013 I havent been able to make this association again.  In explorer I right click the drawing file, open with...,choose default program..browse to C:\Program Files\SolidWorks Corp\SolidWorks eDrawings (2)\, left click on "eDrawingsOfficeAutomater.exe", left click on the open button, check the box that says "always use the selected program to open this kind of file", left click on ok.  So then Solidworks starts up and cranks and opens the file.

Does any one have any tip on fixing this for me?
