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!) Hi, Max! Here's what I'm using on Windows 2000 (at work) and Windows XP Home (at home): C:\Rebol\Core\rebol.exe Rebol/Core C:\Rebol\Base\rebol.exe Rebol/Base C:\Rebol\View\rebol.exe Rebol/View C:\Rebol\Values\ Where my Rebol values reside. C:\Rebol\Docs\ Where all my Rebol documentation resides. C:\Rebol\Link\ Where my Rebol/Link used to reside. I've got individual %user.r files in each Rebol directory, each with the one line: do %/C/Rebol/Values/Values.r ; Loads and do-es all my Rebol values. For special Rebol projects, like my Wiki, I have a directory like: C:\Rebol\Wiki\Wiki.r Here's my registry settings for the .R file type: Action: Core Application: C:\Rebol\Core\Rebol.exe -qs "%1" Action: Edit Application: C:\Metapad\metapad.exe "%1" Action: View (Also set as default) Application: "C:\Rebol\View\rebol.exe" -q "%1" Action: open Application: C:\Rebol\View\Rebol.exe "%1" And the .R icon is from: C:\Rebol\View\Rebol.exe 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!
