My company recently installed a trial version of 2012 on my computer, but I'm still building a library with 2011 compatibility.  When I double click on .rfa and .rvt files now, they open up in 2012, but I want to keep working on them in 2011 (without opening the program first and then opening them from there).  I tried reassociating the filetype to the 2011 .exe, but it just defaults to the 2012.  Anyone else run into this?

I believe this is a windows system setting ... folder options / file types / opens with: xxx

......or it may default to the last version of Revit you had open.

I was wondering that too.  I'm only here for the summer so they might not be wasting a full seat on me.  70% of our department still hasn't touched Revit, so they are being conservative with the licenses despite my urging for everyone (even the old timers) to just dive in.
