ST - Microsoft Visual Studio is not opened when double-clicking on a file in StarTeam

Resolution:

[Pre WRAP] Beer Problem Description: - StarTeam client - any version - Windows - Visual Studio StarTeam should open the associated application when you double-click on a file. When Microsoft Visual Studio is used, this does not work. BeerResolution: The problem is that DevStudio, .NET, & .NET 2003 have NO file OPEN associated with them. In Folder Options. For File Types for each extension you should do the following: - After selecting the file extension, select "Advanced" - Copy the information contained in the Application used to perform action and then take a screen shot of the window, {see attached}. - Select "Cancel" - You are back at the Edit File Type Window. - Select "New" - Set action to "Open" - Application used to perform action, what was copied from the exiting File Action - Select check box for Use DDE - Make all Windows Exactly match the screen shot taken. - Select "OK" - Now make the action "Open" the Default. You must create a NEW association, NOT edit or rename the existing association, and set as Default [/Pre]
