    easy way to change File Association

    Does anybody know an easy way to change the File Association?

    Currently have a problem with the old style Promethean Flipcharts (.flp) trying to be opened with Flash rather then Inspire - anybody got an easy fix?

    This can be done with Group Policy. The image below shows how I associated the file extension .WPS with Microsoft Word. If this in not clear perhaps I can post more detail tomorrow [although I plan to be at BETT for most of the day so maybe not?]
