Hi,

I use a text editor called Cimco to edit CNC text files. Recently, my computer downloaded SP1 for Windows 7 and now I every time I try to open a file with my ".I" file extension it asks me what program I want to use to open the file. I can choose Cimco, but I can't set it as the default for some reason.

I can click the check-box saying use this program as the default, but it doesn't stick. I always have to re-choose to run Cimco every time.

Any suggestions?

Never mind. Problem solved.

I downloaded and ran Microsoft's "Fix It" utility.

Everything works normally now.
