SQL file will not open in SSMS on double-click (or jump list)

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 08, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

Hello, all.

I am running SQL Server Management Studio 2008 on a Windows 7 Enterprise machine here at work.  I am not sure when this started happening, but now, for some reason, when I double-click on a SQL file in Explorer, or from the jump list for SSMS (which I have pinned to my Windows 7 task bar), SSMS will open, but will not load the file in question, nor will it bring up a logon screen to connect to a DB.  I tried unassociating the .SQL extension and then re-associating it using "Open With" and it worked the first time (from the Open With), but then immediately reverted back to its old behavior.  Very annoying.

For now I just open SSMS first (which pops up a logon screen and things proceed normally), but that kind of defeats the purpose of having a jump list or a file association.  Has anybody run into this before and can anybody suggest a fix or what's wrong?

Thanks in advance for any wisdom anyone can provide.

Double click an associated file type and have it open in your WPF application?


I have a WPF application that does a number of things. When running the app, I can go to File > Open, browse to a file, and open it in the app. Fields on the UI are updated with values from the file and everything works great.

The file I am opening contains binary data and has a custom file extension that is associated with my application. The problem is that if I DON'T have the WPF application running and I double click one of my associated files, it simply opens the application. I would like it to open the application and then load the contents of the file I clicked on. How can I go about doing this?

I have looked into using the Application_Startup event handler in the App.xaml.cs but cannot get the filename when double clicking on it as my StartupEventArgs are empty. However, the sender.ToString from Application_Startup handler returns "MyCompany.MyApp.App". How can I get the filename and go about loading it?

Another thing is that if I put a breakpoint in the Application_Startup event handler and double click my associated file, I never hit the breakpoint. The only way I hit the breakpoint is when I run the application from the IDE. I would like to be able to double click a file, then hit the breakpoint so I can do some debugging.

Thanks in advance.

Double click requirement to open menu

Hi, In my application, The main form (having main menu on its top) opens an other form calling .show() method. While the second form(Called via .show() method) is in front of main form, if I click on the menu of Main form it requires 2 click. First to activate the main form and then the second one to open the menu drop down. Is there any way that I could open the menu of main form in the above mentioned scenario in 1 click only. Thanks & Regards, Maverick.

Cutting Edge: Customize Your Open File Dialog


Displaying an Open File dialog is certainly easy in the Microsoft® . NET Framework with Windows® Forms, but the resulting window is not as customizable as when you create it through the Win32® API. With Windows 2000, Microsoft added a nice feature-the places bar, which is the vertical toolbar that appears on the left side of the window to let you select a frequently visited folder.

Moved from WinXP to Win7 - don't see choice to open file in read only or edit mode


I just recently moved from Win XP Pro SP3 to Win 7 32-bit Pro. I am logging into domain X normally. Our Sharepoint 2007 server authenticates only on domain Y. So I start Internet Explorer with "run as different user" and provide my domain Y credentials. All fine. 

In win XP, after I did this, when I click on an Excel file on Sharepoint, I would get a dialog asking if I wanted to check out and edit or open as read only. 

In win7, I don't get that choice. The file simply opens, and I get a bar at the top which allows me to check out the file if I wanted to. 

How can I restore the functionality I used to have, with the dialog for checking out the file before opening it?

Split List into sub lists of List of size n

Hi all,   I've been playing around for a little bit trying to find the best way of taking a List<double> of variable size and splitting it in to sub-lists of  size n. So maybe a method stub like   public List<List<double>> splitData(int width,List<double> data) { <br/> }<br/> The problem is i cant get my head around how to iterate through the parameter "data" properly when the data.count is not exactly divisible by the parameter "width". I have been trying for loops but i think i need to switch to do whiles.   I'm not massively familiar with LINQ but could anyone advise if LINQ would provide an alternative way of doing it?   Any help much appreciated   John
