Problem with KB#72204 - How can I change the editor in the IQ Administrator from WordPad?
Changed the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\WORDPAD.EXE to : %ProgramFiles%\UltraEdit\uedit32.exe
When typing 'wordpad' in RUN UltraEdit launches successfully as expected

But when you launch the IQ Administrator and open the file, Wordpad still launches
If you change the File Association type on Windows 2003 from wordpad to UltraEdit, it will function properly UNTIL you close the IQ Administrator and relaunch at which point the registered file type somehow gets overwritten back to wordpad for the DAT file type.
