I have Stata 9 and 10 installed (Windows XP).
 
I prefer to work with Stata 9 for the time being, as
that is what my coauthors use.
 
My question is - how can I force my machine to use
Stata 9 (not 10) by default when I click into a data
file and, furthermore, when I right click into a
do-file so as to edit it?
 
Thanks for the tip.

The solution is:
 
First, open the Stata version you want to use. I have a Stata 9
and a Stata 10 shortcut at my desktop.
 
Next, from Stata, open a dataset or, from Stata's do-file editor,
load a do-file.
 
Calling .dta- and .do-files from outside of Stata can lead to
the unintended situation of two or more parallel Stata sessions.
To some advanced users this is a solution; to most it leads to
confusion.
