I have Adobe Flash CS3 and Adobe Flash CS4 installed on Windows 7 PC. The problem is that i can set the default to either of the applications but i can't seem to set it to open the appropriate file types.

For eg: I want the files that I create in Flash CS3 to open in the same version i.e. Flash CS3, and the Flash CS4 files to open automatically in the Flash CS4 is there a way to do this? (i.e. If I am opening the files from windows explorer)


If the file extensions are different then yes you can. Otherwise it looks like the answer is


You can however right click and open with a specific application [Open With...]. If you know what files are CS3 and CS4 then it will be a minor nuance to do this. If they are all jumbled together then you may have more difficulty.

  • well that's how I do it normally, I was wondering if there was a better way of doing it apparently not I suppose! – rzlines Feb 25 '10 at 4:00
