Fireworks CS3/Flex Integration.

I've been looking for this solution since I started playing with the Fireworks CS3 prototyping symbols:

How can I create New Rich Symbol Flex Components for Fireworks?

Fireworks as the default image editor.

I upgraded from Fireworks MX 2004 to Fireworks CS3. The upgrade set my default image editor to Photoshop. I tried unsuccessfully to make Fireworks the default image editor. Windows did not throw an error nor would it associate the application. So I dug into the registry and found this key:



HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Applications\Fireworks.exe\shell

The following keys were still pointing to my old Fireworks install:


\Edit Firworks\command
\Open\command
\Preview\command

After changing them to point to my Firworks CS3 install I successfully changed my default image editor back to Fireworks.
