> so after fiddling around I remember the user.r redundancy and realise
that I have my .r file association to %/c/rebol/rebol.exe ---BUT--- the
user.r its trying to use is in %/e/user/administrator/user.r (along with
a COPY of rebol.exe, which it copies by itself, the first time you run a
rebol app. Even if you delete it, it comes back!)
Here's what I'm using on Windows 2000 (at work) and Windows XP Home (at
C:\Rebol\Values\ Where my Rebol
C:\Rebol\Docs\ Where all my Rebol
C:\Rebol\Link\ Where my Rebol/Link used
I've got individual %user.r files in each Rebol directory, each with the
do %/C/Rebol/Values/Values.r ; Loads and do-es all my
For special Rebol projects, like my Wiki, I have a directory like:
Here's my registry settings for the .R file type:
Application: C:\Rebol\Core\Rebol.exe -qs "%1"
Application: C:\Metapad\metapad.exe "%1"
Action: View (Also set as default)
Application: "C:\Rebol\View\rebol.exe" -q "%1"
Application: C:\Rebol\View\Rebol.exe "%1"
And the .R icon is from:
Why not try uninstalling (not just deleting!) all the Rebol versions you
have (and restarting), and try the above? It works OK with the
next-to-latest version of Rebol/View, current version of Rebol/Base, and
next-to-latest version of Rebol/View. The very latest versions of
Rebol/View and Rebol/Core don't seem to behave correctly though. :(
Also, I'd be careful of Rebol/View, because it installs rebol-link.exe
as well! If I accidentally do an install of Rebol/View, I have to
manually alter the registry settings for the icon and for the right
Rebol version to execute.
I hope that helps!
