If you've installed the windows version of AMMP on your PC and are running Windows 95 or Windows NT then there are a number of cute things you can do.
Open the file rather than save it to disk, and AMMP will come right up. (but you will have to open the display window yourself). With Microsoft's explorer the files are saved to "temporary internet files" and can then be saved to another location if you want. (Netscape does something similar, but I'm not exactly sure what).
This also works over networked machines with both pcnfs and
"the microsoft network". Linux users can try Samba
which really works well.
AMMP generates "windows metafile" commands when the
If these don't work, then the registry is probably not set up right. The registry is just a scary name for how windows keeps track of file types and other system data. The AMMP distribution will not automatically set registry entries because I hate it when a program does that. The simplest way to set the registry entries is to open the windows explorer (the "my computer" icon not Internet explorer) and find an "*.ammp" file. Click on the file to open it and then browse to find your copy of AMMP. You probably should do the same thing for "*.amp" files. Make sure you set the "always use this program" check box or else the association is lost.
