Launch Visual Web Developer

Hi there,

Thanks for a great demo looking forward to being your client.
So far everything seems very agreeable except for the one customisation that seems a bit beyond me.
I'm running Microsoft Visual Web Developer 2005 Express Edition (VWD)

This is a very handy tool for working with JavaScript files.
I had no problems setting up Dreamweaver to launch VWD for external editing.
Can't say the same about Topstyle (TS4)

TS4 picked up my Dreamweaver and Fireworks registered suite as well as old Homesite without problems.
I've even furthered the list to launch SDK documents with the help viewer.
The exception is VWD. It launches if I enclose the path with commas ""
I cannot however pass the open file to it I've tried both %1 and "%1"
Keep getting the message "The system cannot find the file specified"

Any clues on how to set VWD 2005 to work with Topstyle 4? Is this possible at all?
Would be appreciated.

if it works with all the other external programs (Dreamweaver, Firefox, etc) than the problem might be with VWD (not with TopStyle).

Thanks. Well, I meant other programs can launch VWD. Like Dreamweaver for example.
Worked first time. The same cannot be said about Topstyle though.
It's wonderful software imho. But here's a shortcoming.

It cannot launch VWD.
