How to set the default application for ABD to use ABD MicroStation mode

All

I want to change the way a DGN file is opened on a PC that has ABD installed.  At the moment if I double click a dgn file within Windows Explorer, it opens with the full ABD version.  I want to change this to use the ABD MicroStation version.  As you are aware there is an icon for this, but via the DGN properties > Open With option, there isn't an option. I can select the ABD.exe file but I am unable to define the BB_Discipline.....  

Anyone know how to change this

Thank you

  • You can also find the "Send To" folder under your Windows profile folder (mine is C:\Users\Larry.Abla\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo) and copy one or more of the delivered ABD Desktop shortcuts into this folder.  Then, when you Right-Click on any .dgn file and slide over to "Send To" the copied application discipline shortcuts will be available for you to select the discipline with which to open the drawing.   NOTE: I would also agree with Marc's statement - I always recommend that users open the correct application then the file having ensured they are using the correct project.
