You must manually edit the NT registry using a tool such as regedit. Peform a search on sql_auto_file and modify the keys. You might want to add a few keys as well. The file type option will not work after you install Oracle tools.

I experienced the same problem when I tried to switch associations for .sql files to Codewright - my editor of choice.

**(( Back up your registry before you touch it unless you have successfully hacked it in the past, ie. make a new NT recovery disk with your current registry settings. ))**
