Default Signature Tool - How to automatically open .cod files with.

Please Login to Remove!

I used to be able to simply double-click on my .cod file and it would automatically open in the Signature Tool

I don't know what in tarnation I did, but now when I double click on it, it opens in Visual-Stinking-Studio

So, I tried to right-click it and open it with SignatureTool.jar, but I guess I can't do that since Windows gives me an error:

"...blablabla.cod is not a Valid Win32 application."

Is there some .bat file I'm supposed to open it with?

I'm sure I just have a setting wrong or something. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Mike

Try - right-click on the .cod file. Choose "Open With" --> "Choose Program" --> "Browse" in the Context Menu and then browse to the location of the signature tool and select it. Make sure the flag on "always open with this application" is set. This should work.

The names of the menu entries may differ a little, because i'm using a german version of windows.

Hi TSchiefer,

Thanks so much for the advice. That is exactly what I thought would work. Unfortunately I must be doing something wrong because when I do that, Windows gives me the following error message:

"\path...\path...\path...\filename.cod is not a valid Win32 application."



I'm guessing it's because signaturetool.jar is not an .exe or .bat file, but I really don't know. I'm guessing that maybe there is a .bat file I'm supposed to point to which then does something with the .jar file, but that's just a guess

Thanks again for your help,

Mike

You can't run SignatureTool.jar directly since it isn't windows application. But you can run "java.exe -jar SignatureTool.jar".

Run "java -jar SignatureTool.jar -?" to see options, which can be used with SignatureTool
