File Association Doesn't Work

When I try to associate a file type with an application (either through
Right Click> Open With or Control Panel> Default Programs> Set
Associations) it does not work if the program isn't already listed prior
to hitting "Browse" or "Change Program." I can navigate to the
executable, and when I choose that program, it doesn't load in the Open
With window.

I simply want my Sketchup file to open in Sketchup when I click on it.
Please advise!

Re: File Association Doesn't Work

Hello Freshsqueze,

Reinstalling Sketchup to do a repair install on it may be able to set
it as the default program to open the Sketchup file afterwards. You
might also check to see if you can open the file from within Sketchup as
well.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
