    Automatically open .flp files with ActivInspire in XP by default?

    As our school transitions to ActivInspire it would be very helpful to have XP automatically open both .flp and .flipchart files in ActiveInspire when the file is double-clicked. Is there an easy way to do this, e.g. a preference in ActiveInspire? If not, can you give more detailed instructions about how this can be done in XP via the registry or appropriate mechanism. Thank you.

    It should be possible with a registry fragment - in fact I think I've done so at work - I'll update tomorrow when I can have a look at my setup.

    In case you still need this I use the following:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.flipchart]
    "Progid"="Inspire.Flipchart.1.0"

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.flipchart\OpenWithPro gids]
    "Inspire.Flipchart.1.0"=hex(0):
    "ACTIVstudioPE.Flipchart.3.5"=hex(0):
