Hi F,


The following should work:

- Click the "Start-menu" and open the "Control Panel"

- Open "Folder Options" and select the "File Types" tab

- Select the file extension in the list (e.g. ".dta") and click on "Advanced"

- Highlight "open" from the Actions list and click "Edit" to the right

- Click "Browse" and double-click "wsestata.exe" FROM YOUR STATA9 FOLDER
(assuming you are using Stata SE)

- Add the following after the location in the "Application used to perform
action:" field:
  [ use "%1"] without the square brackets



Do the similar for the .do files but change [ use "%1"] to [ do "%1"] or [
doedit "%1"], respectively.

Just on a side note, I set the doedit action as the default action (highlight
and click "Set default") so I can open do files in the editor right away without
first having to right-click them and select the appropriate option. IMHO that
saves quite some time, but it can be a hassle if you ever work on a different
machine.


Best regards,
Sven-Oliver Spieß
