    Default Double click DWG and open with latest version

    How do I Double click DWG and it open with latest version?

    I had 2018 installed a while back. I am using 2021 now but its a "Server License". I think that is the problem.

    Can I do something to make 2021 from my company server the default to double click DWG to open with?

    In addition to BB's solution, I just wanted to clarify your other statement. The license type does not affect what program is launched. Also, 2021 is not being offered in the old "server license" version. It uses the named user license system maintained by Autodesk.

    You can just double click on the 2021 application icon. Windows should then default to opening 2021 when opening a DWG directly from Windows Explorer.
    Ed, 2021 was still offered as a server-based license for existing maintenance subscriber's.
