.aep projects default application problem
on Jul 17, 2016 at 10:57:18 am

I installed After Effects CS4 on brand new computer and everything was fine, then i remembered that I have some old projects created in After Effects 7.0, so I installed the 7.0 version. Now when I try to open the AEP projects the default is After Effects 7.0, even when right click - open with - after effects CS4, I got After 7.0 starting. I tried changing the default opening program, but when I select CS4, navigate to program files/etc. it goes back and only After 7.0 is showed.

If you're installing these old applications on a machine with a new operating system, I'm not surprised by this.There's one thing you haven't tried. Open the CS4 application. From it, open the CS4 project.

No joy? We'll need to know about your machine & OS.

Windows 7 32 Bit, I had them on a previous machine and they worked with no problem.
I tried opening the projects via open file and they are working fine, in fact the whole application is working fine, the only problem is opening the projects directly with double click.

I cant select CS4, because when I select the app it goes back to the menu where only is 7.0 Icon and it says Adobe After Effects.
