  • Default to open with batch file

    I hav a user who needs to open a vcproject file with a batch file. Under the administrator account I have no problem pointing the file to open with the batch file. However logged in with his account it will not let me point to the batch file to open the program. It's all CAD type files. It will let me point to an exe but not a bat.

    Anyone know why this would be happening?

    Have you tried changing the BAT file to a CMD file? They're for all intents the same thing, but if you have something blocking the BAT, maybe the CMD will work.

      There was a registry key in the way. Thanks though.
