Change the app used for OLE activation

By carlrardon ·
When you change a file association it does not change the app used to activate an embedded object. For example, I changed the file association for gif files from PhotoEditor to PhotoDraw. However when I embed a gif object, double-clicking the objectdoes not use PhotoDraw to activate it. Is there a registry tweak, or any other way, to control the app that will be used to activate an embedded object?
