You can define any number of extensions that DMC will be able to recognize and allow you to open by double-clicking on the file directly from Windows Explorer.
We recommend that you use DMC Viewer to open all your .TPS, .DAT and .DBF files. With most versions of Microsoft Windows this is done through Default Programs. Search Windows help for Set Program Access and Computer Defaults for additional information. In Windows Explorer you can also right-click on a file and select Open With. From there you can select or search for the program you want to associate with that file extension.
You can also link other extensions to these three types of files within DMC. For example, you to have your application save your TPS files with the .CGF extension. Follow the instructions above to make DMC.EXE the default program for that extension. Next, go into DMC and add an Extension with the Parent being TPS and the Extension as CGF. Once set up you will be able to double-click on the .CGF file in Windows Explorer and have it open in DMC Viewer. DMC will also see them as TPS files and open them accordingly when you're working inside DMC.
To add a new extension, select Extensions from the Tweak menu.
This browse uses edit-in-place, so right-click inside the browse to get a sub-menu that will allow you to choose Insert, Modify or Delete.
Start by entering the type of Parent File that corresponds to your new extension. TPS, DAT and DBF are the only supported types for association. Tab to the EXT column and enter your new extension. Do not enter quotes or the dot.
