    SQLDEVELOPER 4.1 and SQL file type associations in Win7

    Gusora

      Have set the SQL file type association to the sqldeveloper.exe

       

      When I double click on a sql file all I get is a timer for a few seconds then nothing!!

       

      Does a change of file association need a reboot? surely not!

          I think you mean SQL Developer 4.0.1.  Anyway, there have been issues reported in this area.  See the following:

          sqldeveloper64W.exe has stopped working

           

          Since I constantly switch between versions of SQL Developer, I tend to leave sql files associated with my favorite text editor.  However, I did a quick test, associating the sql file extension (in 4.0.1) with either

          ...\sqldeveloper\sqldeveloper.exe

          or

          ...\sqldeveloper\sqldeveloper\sqldeveloper.exe

          and it seemed to work fine.  By the way, rather than setting the association in one of the ways mentioned in the referenced discussion, I just right-click on the sql file, then select Open with > Choose default program.
