Upgraded to JMP 8 and all of my JMP7 files changed to "Opens with: Uknown"

After upgrading to JMP 8 I tired to open a few of my JMP 7 journals and data sets from the folders they are stored in. The first thing I noticed was that the icons changed from the normal JMP icon to the default icon that displays when your computer does not recognize the program the file should open with. If I right-click on the file and select "Open With" and then choose JMP8.exe from its appropriate directory nothing happens or it defaults to Adobe Acrobat. The files will open if I open them from within JMP, but if I try to select them from outside of JMP I run in to the problem I described above. Anybody have any ideas?

Try this:

Preferences > Windows Specific > Reset Associations (A button near the bottom)
That did the trick! Thanks!
