I also have this problem on both of my WinXP machines. I have completely 
uninstalled and reinstalled Amaya several times to upgrade to the latest 
versions, but "Open With" continues to not work. Even if I select Open 
With->Chose Program... and browse to c:\Program 
Files\Amaya\WindowsWX\bin\amaya.exe, click Open and OK, it does NOT open 
with Amaya, nor does Amaya get added to the list of applications in the 
Open With list. Instead it opens with the first application in the Open 
With list. This is very annoying. I can, however, drag and drop the file 
to be opened onto the Amaya desktop shortcut.
