st: Re: double-clicking on *.gph
Sascha O. Becker (email@example.com) asked about double-clicking
on a .gph file in Windows:
> when double-clicking on a Stata 8 graph (saved as *.gph) in Windows
> Explorer, I get the error message

When Stata first starts, it installs some registry settings which control
what happens when a user double-clicks on a Stata file (.dta, .gph, .do,
.smcl). For .gph files, Stata 8 puts
graph use "%1"
into the registry, where %1 is replaced with the name of the file
which is double-clicked by the user. Stata 7 would put
graph using "%1"
Given Sascha's description, I believe that Stata 7 must have been
run on the computer at some point after Stata 8 was installed. To
restore the default Stata 8 registry settings for file associations,
Sascha should start Stata 8, pull down the Prefs menu, and select
Restore File Associations.
