Dear Jeph,

I have Stata icons on an XP machine working fine. I suggest trying the
1) as I understand the icon is from Wordpad. Does Wordpad also open
the file? Or is Stata launched when you double-click the file?
2) can you change the program that opens the file?
3) can you register another type (e.g. 123) with a Stata icon?
4) Do you observe similar things with other file types?
5) Is there any program that monitors registry and restores the
settings? (watch-dog kind of a program).
6) Save this as a Stata.reg file and double-click to import to
registry. Before importing, change path to Stata's binary as
appropriate. See if do-files are fixed.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


@="Stata Do-file"

@="\"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Stata11\\StataMP-64.exe\",3"



@="\"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Stata11\\StataMP-64.exe\" doedit \"%1\""


@="\"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Stata11\\StataMP-64.exe\" \"%1\""


Best regards, Sergiy Radyakin
