Subject: [dxlab] KML file with DXView open

Every time i launch DXview I get a popup "How do you want to open this file?" Apparently it has something to do with Google earth. A click anywhere on the desktop makes it disappear and it doesn't seem to cause any trouble - just an irritant.

That means
1. you have DXView configured to open Google Earth and display information on it

2. your Google Earth installation is incomplete or has been broken; specifically, when directed to "open" a .kml file, Windows is not automatically starting Google Earth. You may be able to correct this by re-establishing Windows' "file association" between .kml files and Google Earth.
