I am using WinSCP to edit some files on a website over SFTP (CSS, JS, HTML). When I open a file using WinSCP, it lets me choose which program is used to edit the file. I want CodeWriter to be that file. How do I do that?

Basically, what is the path to the codewriter.exe executable?

Hi Shawn,

Code Writer is a Windows Store app so there isn't really an .exe path for it, at least one that you can get at.  The Windows Explorer "Open With" gives you the option to choose Code Writer as a default program for various file types.  Myabe you could make use of that somehow.

Thanks.  I thought I had it on my old computer but I can't seem to remember how the heck I did it.  Maybe I really did set all HTML files to just open with it by default since WinSPC will use the default associated application on its own.

I did a lot of looking through the registry to see if I could find the association details but these Windows Store apps apparently are vastly different in that regard.

The latest build of this product (v3.3.0029) was released 6 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
