Glad i could help
It was funny, actually, because I tried this very fix earlier, but not very diligently--because I did not have your step-by-step instructions--and because for some reason Win10 kept wanting to assign the .ct extension to Adobe Acrobat...;) So after I changed the default association for .ct to the CE, and after I followed your instructions, I got it to work, at last. So, thanks again for bringing it up here as I would not have looked at it again if you hadn't.
I like these things because I can buff up my characters a bit at the beginning so as to make the game much less of a slow-plodding grind to begin with. I do just enough so as to make character advancement still a major part of the game--just not quite as tedious in the beginning. Thanks again!
