We currently have multiple versions of Maya installed(8, 2008, 2009) because of various projects that require a specific version. A third party piece of software uses the file extension associated with windows to determine which version of Maya it should use for exporting assets. Because Maya 2008 was installed after Maya 2009, Windows now attempts to open all Maya mb files with Maya 2008. Thus the third party software is now incorrectly attempting to export all mb files with Maya 2008 instead of Maya 2009. I attempted to change the program associated with the mb extension, however, that did not seem to work. Does anyone know of an easy why to switch which version of Maya is associated with its file types? Perhaps there is an option to easily do this in Maya? I was hoping to avoid reinstalling Maya on multiple machines to get things working again. -Bill

I had tried doing this multiple times before making my post. I even manually browsed to the Maya 2009 executable via the Open With dialog. Unfortunately, every time I double click the mb file, it still opens in Maya 2008. It's appearing like the only way to correct the problem is by manually editing the registry settings.
