File Association with OLE
I've got an OLE container. My object type is Micrografx Picture Publisher
and it is properly registered on my machine. I placed a bit mapped file
on my drive and called it from my VB project. It came up on my screen.
However, when I right-clicked to edit, I expected the menu items
from Picture Publisher to show up; instead I got MS Paint. After
thinking about this I assume this happened because my default file
association for a BMP image is Paint. When my app is complete, I can't
expect the user to reset their file associations, so my question is,
"How do I change or override the default file association for a program?
