Windows 7's file association controls have been "simplified" and now I appear to be unable to change the default association of a file (in my case a Python script) to a different executable.
If I right click the script and go to "Open with...", "Choose default program", then "Browse..." and pick the desired interpreter (e.g.
C:\Python27\python.exe), it reverts to another--the first--
python.exe already in the "Recommended Programs" which is a 2.4 interpreter. There's a second
python.exe in there as well, 2.6, but if I explicitly select that program with browse, it still reverts to the first Python in the list.
How do I get back the power of XP?
