    File association query (Cubase)

    Someone just pointed out that the Music PCs opened .cpr files in Cubase SE3 on double-clicking, though they've been updated to Cubase 5.

    I tried changing the file association through Tools...Folder Options...Filetypes, and now Cubase 5 starts at least, though it then fails to open the file. (Works fine through File...Open.)

    Is there some other aspect to file association that I've missed?

    Uninstall the old version ?


    To do file associations I usually go for the command line
    assoc and ftype

    basically something like:
    assoc .cpr=Cubase5File
    ftype Cubase5File=c:\path\to\cubase.exe %1

    You can do more, but this usually works.
    There's probably already something associating the .cpr with a file type, so you might be able to just get away with moving the ftype from the old one to the new one.
