Why don’t my DavkaWriter files open when I double-click them in Windows Vista or Windows 7?

This problem occurs when the “file association” between the DavkaWriter program and the DWD file type is not set up properly.  Windows may prompt you to choose the program you want to use to open this type of file or it may try to open the file in a different program you may have chosen previously.

To fix this issue:

  • Right-click a DavkaWriter document (a file with a .DWD extension)
  • Choose Open With…
  • Click Browse
  • Navigate to C:\Program Files\Davka Corp\DavkaWriter (may be Program Files (x86) on 64-bit Windows)
  • Choose the “davwrite.exe” program
  • MAKE SURE to choose the checkbox to “always use this program to open this type of file”
  • Click OK

DavkaWriter will then be set properly to open DWD files directly from Windows.
