Error description

  • The .rpy extension does not get associated by default when
    Rational Rhapsody 8.1.3 64-bits in installed. (also on 814).
    Also when trying to associate the file using the Open With
    option and pointing to the rhapsody.exe file it sets it to
    Adobe.
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Install Rhapsody 8.1.3 32-bit and then try to open a model by
    double clicking on the <model>.rpy file.
    --> Rhapsody opens
    2. Uninstall Rhapsody
    3. Install Rhapsody 8.1.3 64-bit and then try to open a model by
    double clicking on the <model>.rpy file.
    --> Rhapsody does not open
    4. If you point to the rhapsody.exe file when you go through the
    'Open With' option will associate the .rpy extension to Adobe.
