VB Shortcuts with Windows 95

With the release of VB4 and the new development environment for 32-bit operating systems, I use three versions of Visual Basic in developing VB applications. Some of my clients won't accept apps built with VB4. Some will not soon upgrade to a 32-bit operating system. After installing both the 16-bit and 32-bit VB design environments on my Windows 95 development machine, I discovered that any project named *.VBP would be opened with the 32-bit VB design environment. This quick way to fire up the correct VB design environment on my development machine works pretty well:
Store all files for a project in the same folder. Add a shortcut to the proper VB design environment to the folder or on the desktop if you wish. Drag the project file (*.VBP) on top of the VB design environment shortcut and (voila!) open the project with the proper design environment.
