I've tried the usual process.
- Open Properties of a file of the type I want to change
- Select the "Change" button after "Opens With":
- Browse to C:\Program Files\vim\vim73\gvim.exe
- Select OK
What I expect to happen: Vim should appear in the "Other Programs" list
What happens: Vim does not appear anywhere in the list, the first choice on the list (notepad) is still selected.
Some advice I saw online indicated that I should add a registry entry that the installer missed. So I added "C:\Program Files\vim\vim73\gvim.exe" "%1" to [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Applications\gvim.exe\shell\open\command]. This didn't seem to help.
Any idea what I'm missing here.
EDIT: well, this is interesting. I can set vim.exe to be the default application, just not gvim.exe.
