Description
Build a launch file to launch files of certain types in certain applications skipping the system file associations.  You should be able to use this as well on portable devices as long as the computer you intend to use it on has .NET 4.0. by using the DropZone that is included.

Features
Portable enabled.
Shows an open with menu when it detects you have more than one type of an extension in the launch file configuration.
You can also create application listings with specific command line arguments to do certain things for you when launching the file.

Screenshots

The launch file editor...


The DropZone with the built-in form skin.


The launcher when it has detected that you have multiple file extensions of the same type in the launch file configuration.


Usage

Installation
Extract to an application folder outside of the normal program files folder making sure to extract it with folder structure intact.

Using the Application
To act as a launcher for file types you specify from the launch file editor.  For non flash drive you can add a shortcut in the SendTo folder of your system that points to the launcher. Then when you right click a file goto the Send To menu and select the shortcut to launch with the launcher.  This also has the added benefit of not having to change file associations on the system.  Currently to use from your flash drive or portable hard drive you would need to use the DropZone with the launcher and launch configuration file in the folder that the DropZone is.

DropZone Skins
Any png file with alpha transparency placed into the skins folder.

ac_arguments.dat
Feel free to edit that file in your favorite text editor for argument auto complete to show up when adding and/or editing an application.  Note: One set of arguments per line.

Help File
Please note that the help file is not done.

Uninstallation
Just delete the application folder.

Known Issues
Currently do not know of any.
