Hbul is on a distinguished road

I have multiple versions of Workbench 3D installed on my windows 10 computer.
Version 16.4, 17.0 and 19.

I have tried this trick when rightmousebutton click.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > Classes > Local Settings > Software > Microsoft > Windows > Shell > MuiCache
And the name the different versions.
But for same reason I only see version 16....
This information comes from this page:

It is like version 16 is default and I cant get version 19 as standard app for wbpj files.

If I start version 19 first and then open the project it goes ok.
But as soon as I double click a wbpj file it is the old version that opens.

Anyone knows how to get this to work. It would make my work much easier.

Hi Hakan,

The H_KEY option should work directly, are you sure that you properly linked to the executable of the version of interest? If not you should properly set the path.

Otherwise you can also use the file option toolbar. Next to properties you have an icon WB open and a drop down menu with the versions installed.

Have fun
