With AutoCAD LT and AutoCAD 2012 both loaded, when right clicking on a dwg file to "Open" from Outlook, the file is opened in LT. How do I change the default program to 2012?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Control Panel > Default Programs > Associate a file type or protocol with a program > select a file type and browse
I hope this helps.
Windows default to the last DWG application you used.
It's considered best practice to start the AutoCAD/LT version you want first, then use OPEN to access your files: but it's just as easy to add your preferred program to your Windows' SEND TO list then right-click and "send to" the program you want. If you're not able to Internet search how to do it with your Windows version (youo provide no info), there are many freeware like SENDTO TOYS and others that make it real easy (and if you have Win7, the OPEN pulldown in Windows Explorer does the same thing).
Never really noticed the OPEN pulldown before....
