one of the users in our shop is trying to open a part from windowsexplorer and when he does he gets the error "Windows cannotfind <filename>.SLDPRT.  Make sure you typed the namecorrectly, and then try again.  To search for a file, clickthe Start button, and then click Search"  

he says it will eventually open if he keeps trying it, but it'sstill kind of annoying.  it will open fine if he openssolidworks first, but i would think that the file associationsshould be good enough to know to open solidworks when you click ona solidworks file.
