[EASY - restore *.vb file association] VS2005

an
Hallo,
easy task;
I have VS2005.

I simply need to restore the default associated application
and the ralated icon to the *.vb files
(see image linked below for detils) ,
as they came from scratch (from the installation).

This because actually mines are changed
and the inconvenient is that for every clicked *.vb file
a new istance of VS2005 is opened
(initially all the files were opened inside
a single VS2005 instance).

See the image (40 kb) at:

to better understand my needs.

--------

So,
here the items you gently should communicate to me
(they are expressed in Italian, but they are universal):
Operazione:
Applicazione utilizzata per....:
Usa DDE: >>>>> (checked or not?)
Messaggio DDE:
Applicazione:

Applicazione DDE non in esecuzione:

Argomento:
---------

And finally the
filename and coordinates (see linked image)
of the icon :

--------


Thanks

Applicazione utilizzata per....:


NOTEPAD.EXE %1

(that's what's it says here. I haven't changed this)


mmmmhh, really odd...

in my opinion it is not the real default association,
in my opinion we should find
devenv.exe
or
VSLaunche.exe
and parameters like /dde or %1

Is there anybody else who can submit his dafault values?

BUt you didn't try it, did you? Because they work here as you want
them to be: double click a .vb file and it opens in vs.net

I know they work,
but which of the two is the Default one?

Maybe if you press the "Default" or "Restore" button
from the Fyle Tipe tab you get the original one;
(warning you'll lose your current Notepad association);
mines are messed up and the original one doesn't come back.

but I repeat:
IS THERE ANYBODY ELSE AROUND HERE
WITH THE ORIGINAL VALUES?
it's really a matter of seconds to chek them out
from the File Type tab...
