Can't change default program to open dwg

Last Modified: 2008-01-09

A client has map 5 and civil 3d 2006 installed on his machine.  Map 5 is the current default to open drawings.  I've tried to  change this by clicking 'open with' and browsing to the autodesk civil 3d 2006 folder and selecting acad.exe, but it still opens up in map 5.  Is there something I'm missing?  Thanks!
