In my office, we use a custom right-click menu in .dwg files to allow the users to choose which version of AutoCAD they want to open the file.

It howover requires that AutoCAD don't mess with the file association of DWG files, otherwise the custom menu is lost.

Once the menu is installed, the first time AutoCAD is open it detects it is not the default DWG launcher and asks:

AutoCAD - DWG Association

I choose "Do not associate DWG files with AutoCAD", to preserve the right-click menu configuration.

Howover, I'm having an issue with a workstation where this window is not popping up, and it is reassociating DWG files with AutoCAD, what ruins the whole thing.

Is there some way I can reset this setting and make it ask again or simply configure this behaviour somewhere?
