Been there done that. This happens with a lot of schematic CAD tools and
Microsoft Scheduler.

        There is a simple fix, go into your Explorer, Tools, Options or
Folder Options, File Types. Find the .SCH extension and manually change it
back to Protel as the "Opens With" program. This will screw your automatic
linking between schedules and Microsoft Scheduler but for most of "us" this
would not be a big deal compared to not opening schematics with the correct
program.

Brad Velander.

Ive just had the following report. I don't use BigFudge for this reason, but
I know IT managers in some places make it mandatory - they think it saves
them work.

Anyway here's a BigF-Up that affects Protel, so you'd better be aware of it.

Pat came across an issue when he installed a Microsoft Office patch that
pretty much killed Protel.  Microsoft Scheduler has registered .sch file
extensions but Protel also uses these extensions.  After updating, the
extension associations were a mess.
