Assuming that you use WinXP, right click on the file, choose "open with" then select your application (or click browse if it isnt listed) then check the little box named "always use this application for this kind of file" or something like that. Then click OK and you should be ok. :)

When you create a setup project in Visual Studio you also get the option to assign file extentions. This way you don't code it yourself but leave it to a setup...
