Configure File Associations

If you are a Windows® user, you can configure Enterprise Architect to be the default document handler for your language source files.



Start > View > Preferences > Source Code Engineering > Code Editors : Configure Enterprise Architect File Associations Browse icon


For each file type that you would prefer to open in Enterprise Architect, click on the checkbox to the left of the file type name. After selecting all of the document types you require, click on the Save button.

After this, clicking on any corresponding file in Windows® Explorer will open it in Enterprise Architect.


  • You can change the default programs, or documents handled by them, directly through the 'Default Programs' option in Windows ® Control panel.
