Question: A customer asked about submitting a job from file by double-clicking on the .xja directly.  In essence, associating the ".xja" file type with the QubeGUI a submission dialog so one can launch jobs by double-clicking on those files.

Answer: Yes, one can set this up directly to have an .xja file launch the QubeGUI submission dialog on any Windows system.  Below are the steps to perform that file association:

  • Open My Computer or any File Explorer window
  • Select menu Tools -> Folder Options...
  • Click the "File Types" tab
  • Click "New" and specify "xja" as the new file type.  Click OK.
  • Select that "xja" filetype and click on the Advanced button
  • Click on "New" to create a "submit" Action to call this as the "Application used to perform action:"
        "C:\Program Files (x86)\pfx\qube\bin\qube.exe" --submitFile "%1"
  • Click OK and close the dialogs
  • Test by double clicking on an .xja file.  A submit dialog should launch for it.
