Error description

  • In Microsoft Windows 7 there is no 'open with' context menu when
    you right click on an executable fle.
    
    This is described in Microsoft Article KB259908.
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/259908
    
    In the IBM Rational  ClearCase Explorer context menu there is
    still such an option for executable files - but with no matching
    function from Windows 7 it does not work and can cause problems.
    
    ClearCase should not have an 'Open With' entry for a file that
    does not have it in Windows Explorer  (such as exe, cmd, bat
    files).
    
    ClearCase Explorer should have 'Edit' in the context menu for
    all files as seen in Windows Explorer
    
    
    Workaround : Use the Windows Explorer context menu options.
