Hi, all,

This is for R-2.5.0 on WinXP and in particular RGui.

I'm trying to teach some colleagues of mine R and rather than impose Xemacs/ESS upon them I decided to simply start by showing them RGui. When R is installed, R workspaces (.RData) are automatically registered so that I can double-click on them in Explorer RGui opens with the correct working directory. However, I cannot figure a way to do the same for R scripts. In other words, I want to double-click on a .R file in Explorer, have RGui open, set the working directory to the location of where the script is saved, and load the script into the script editor. Is this possible?
