Launch Pro/E session from Windchill on internet browser

Happy Monday all,


Not sure how much of this is Windchill and how much Pro/E configuration.


But the situation is this: some users when in IE windchill cangoto the Action Menuof a Pro/E file and select 'Open in Pro/Engineer' and it will comply. Others will do the same thing and ProductView will launch. Where oh where have I gone wrong? Got a feeling this will bea forehead slapper.

Thanks for your attention,

Bob,

What happens when you click "Open in ProEngineer" is that the system
"downloads" a file with an extension of .PHA. If you click "Open in
ProEngineer", initially, your computer does not know what to do with that
file extension. Start by clicking "Open in ProEngineer" and save the .PHA
file to your desktop. Then, right click the file and choose Open With...
--> Choose Default Program. If you see ProENGINEER apear in the list of
programs, select that and make sure the check box that says "Always use the
selected program to open this kind of file" is checked. That should now
allow your computer to recognize the PHA files and open them directly in
ProE.

If ProENGINEER is not an option in the Programs list, you will have to
browse your computer for the proe1.bat file as the Program to handle PHA
files.

Please let me know if you need anyhelp finding the proe1.bat file.
