What is being asked for here? You can open the file with any text editor using the open with default feature in Windows.

If i click on a .PCG file and choose PCGen to open it, PCGen logo shows up for a moment and then disappears and nothing happens.

Shouldn’t it run a program and load the mentioned sheet?

This is a reasonable request, but I know little about how to make this work on windows. We’d need to get the double click action to correspond with the “open” action. If someone knows how to do this, I’d be happy to review and merge.

Thank you, it would improve the experience on Windows a lot since “Open” dialog in PCGen doesn’t support favorite folders and so, so this could be a very nice improvement. I think you could pass the path to the file to program main method and then read the corresponding sheet from the specified path.
