Problem with Corel 40

Running Win95 and Corel 40.  I am setup to where files that contain the extensions pcx and tiff are to be opened using Corel Photo-Paint.  The problem is that everytime I double click on a file that has these extensions it starts Photo-Paint well enough but then goes on to display the picture TWICE...without fail!  Now if I open Photo-Paint first and then open a file using it's file menu the picture is displayed only once.  How can I have it display the picture only once when I select a pcx or yiff file?  Did the usual delete/reinstall and performed a thorough scan that found no errors.

Because the Corel 4.0 had released for years, and ain't
fully compatible with Win95's 32bit enviroment(although
it still can run in 16bit mode).

I'm using Corel 6.0 on Win95 and everything work well,
may be you should try to upgrade to greater version.

Until recently, I used Corel 4.0 on Win 95, and I would double click on a file in say Explorer and it would only open once in Photo Paint.  

I did not have to make the file associations manually as you have stated.  Corel does it for you in your win.ini file (yes, still used in Win 95), did you make a double entry?

Hey it's a shot in the dark, but that is why this is a comment and not an answer.

P.S.  Buy Corel 7.0 .... beauty!

Rico.. Sounds like a Corel option for opening files is set to auto-open on top of the options you have selected in W95 for the extensions you have mentioned.   In addition, check the parameters you have in the "extension settings" cause they may be causing it to open the files twice.  Also... I must mention that I have little faith in Corel at present.  Maybe the application is just crappy... like the WordPerfect product (which I have been the recognized guru in previously... till Corel introduced regular lockups and piss poor speed)!!!  Corel has finally FORCED me to change my companies directions and reformat, etc. all software documentation to MS Word.  I hate Word but.. it is stable.  Corel isn't.   I provide this info just to vent some steam and to point out.. Corel may be the creator of your problem.
