epodcast168 – Changing the Computer File Extensions

When you install a new computer program, the program uses something called the file extension (the three letters after the dot on the filename). Often, when users install a new version of Vectorworks, they do not want the new version of Vectorworks to open the old files, so they choose to keep the Association with the old version of Vectorworks.
But what can you do when you want all your Vectorworks files to open with the new version of Vectorworks?

The file associations in the computers can be adjusted. On the Windows machine you can go to the Control Panel and change the file associations so that all your Vectorworks files will open with the up-to-date version of the program.
On the Macintosh, you can use the get info dialog box to change the file associations.
