I have both Emacs 21.3.1 and Emacs 23.1.1 installed under Windows
XP. When I double-click on a ".txt" file, it runs Emacs 21.3.1.
The usual way to change this under Windows XP is to:|
Right now, if I double-click on a ".txt" file, it runs Emacs
21.3.1. I've tried the procedure above, selecting runemacs.exe for
Emacs 23.1.1, but double-clicking on a ".txt" file still opens it in
the old version (21.3.1).
right-click on a file of the desired type (".txt" in this
click the "Change" button next to "Opens With",
in the "Open With" dialog box, if the program you want isn't
listed under "Programs", click "Browse" and select the
executable you want to handle that file type. For Emacs, you
have to select runemacs.exe rather than emacs.exe, or an
MS-DOS command window will open every time you run Emacs.
It used to be that to install Emacs, you had to run addpm.exe, and
that executable is still provided. So I tried running the version
of addpm.exe in the 23.1.1 directory. But that didn't change
On a Windows XP machine with multiple versions of Emacs installed,
how can I specify which version is to be run when I double-click on
a ".txt" file?
