I meant to have the app read the SS prefs file
when run, i.e. double-clicked, and for the instructions to have the user
do that after install. But I had the app read the file only if it hadn't read
it before . . . but this was version .91, i.e., ahem, beta . . . :-)

For the icon association, you'll need to delete any older versions of Open WP Files, ensure the new one is placed somewhere in the Applications folder to get LaunchServices to read the plist, and then you may need to restart the Finder to see the icons change (though the actual app binding should be updated right away).Will the user domain's Applications folder work? The app works on my
machine, but I had already done a bunch of things to try to get the binding
to stick, e.g. the DefaultApp prefpane, and I don't know if I was able to get
rid of everything before installing your masterpiece.

dare I think it, when they consider the competition, start to use) WP.
- You could try creating another user account on your system and test it there - that would probably work.
