Re: associating .m files with matlab

I also got this problem, on one computer only; I've got a laptop which does not display this behaviour, i.e.: when I doubleclick an mfile, it opens it in the editor when Matlab is already running, and starts Matlab when it isn't. And I've got a main pc, which does display this behaviour, i.e.: when I doubleclick an mfile, it opens a NEW instance of Matlab WITHOUT that file in the editor.
Changing the file associations, as mentioned here several times, doesn't do anything, since mfiles are already associated with Matlab (it would open access if they were hijacked). Reinstalling Matlab does not solve the problem.
However, I did notice something odd; it opens a doswindow just before starting Matlab. Might that be the cause for the behaviour?
