I forgot how this started to work ;)

something to do with registry settings...

classes something...

I'll try to make it into an easy double clickeable reg entry.

but ultra busy days lately...

but when you click on a rev file url it downloads and open it in rev... 

still it launches another rev instance and that could overwrite some

maybe I shouldn't share it for safety concerns ;)
