[Chimera-users] Chimera 1.8rc 64-bit as Default Application

My coworker accidentally reproduced the bug by uninstalling the version 
of chimera that those file types were associated with.  And we were able 
to fix it by using Chimera's Tools / Utilities / Browser Configuration 
tool (BC).  So one question, is did you use the BC tool before to do the 
file type associations?   My guess is that you did, so you'll need to 
keep using it.  And, another guess, is that if you only use the Windows 
GUI technique to do the file type associations, then that technique 
would continue to work with newer Chimeras.
