I have installed the Canopy Python package, and when I double-click a python file it opens the Canopy editor. I want clicking the file to run it, not edit it. I have changed the file properties to
Type of file: PY file (.py) / Opens with: python.exe but it doesn't work. Double clicking the file flashes a cmd window for a split second but does not run the file, presumably because it's starting python without giving it a filename.
Note: in a cmd window,
python file.py runs the file just fine. And
assoc .py says
.py=Enthought.Canopy, not the expected something like
Note2: Association of Python files in Windows not working says to do a "shift right-click" on the file, but I get no better options with the shift than with just a right-click by itself.
The properties window has no obvious way to tell Windows to run the file with
python.exe %s, which is what I assume is needed. How does one set a file association that will actually run the file?
