FW MX 2004 file associations - Macromedia Fireworks

Hi All .WXP I have found http://www.macromedia.com/support/fireworks/ts/doents/file_type_associations.htm#file_types which talks of a utility that will reset file associations to the operating system defaults after installing FW. I pretty much want to do the opposite. For some reason, the FW associations have disappeared and I would like to re-instate them. The Ctl Click > Open With > Browse dialogue has no effect. I have also tried Control Panel > Folder Options > file Types and removed the PNG extensions and then added it again associating it with Fireworks.exe But it still ends up being associated with Windows Picture and FAX Viewer (shimgvw.dll) ...

    Default FW MX 2004 file associations

    Hi All .WXP

    I have found

    http://www.macromedia.com/support/fireworks/ts/doents/file_type_associations.htm#file_types

    which talks of a utility that will reset file associations to the operating
    system defaults after installing FW.

    I pretty much want to do the opposite. For some reason, the FW associations
    have disappeared and I would like to re-instate them.

    The Ctl Click > Open With > Browse dialogue has no effect.

    I have also tried Control Panel > Folder Options > file Types and removed
    the PNG extensions and then added it again associating it with Fireworks.exe
    But it still ends up being associated with Windows Picture and FAX Viewer
    (shimgvw.dll)

    Thaks in advance for you help

    Hello Steve,

    The TechNote about resetting the File Type association of image files was
    written for Fireworks MX. (This includes the hotfix for it). The issue is,
    Fireworks MX automatically change the File type associations of JPGs, GIFs
    and PNG files to Fireworks MX. We remove that feature in Fireworks MX 2004.

    Now, TechNote 16411
    http://www.macromedia.com/support/fireworks/ts/doents/file_type_associations.htm#file_types

    lists all the manual procedure of setting the file type association of
    files. Follow this Technote carefully. You might just be missing a step or
    two.

    Thanks Anthony.

    You were right. I was making the mistake of clicking Change (which seems
    kind of logical to me :) when I should have been clicking on Advanced
