Windows – Rename autocad in open with list

autocadwindows 7

I use a Autocad civil 3d 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014. Depending on the project I am working on I would want to open a drawing in a specific version.

The "open with" drop down calls them all autocad without the year, if I actually click on "choose program" I get more information

How can I change what it calls them in the "open with" drop down?

The application path used when opening DWG files with double-click (i.e. using AcLauncher.exe) is found in the registry under:


You could therefore write a simple batch script to alter this path prior to opening your drawings.
