Associating the .PBL Extension with PowerBuilder
You cannot associate the .PBL extension with the PowerBuilder EXE as PowerBuilder does not accept a library name as a startup parameter.

But you can still achieve the desired effect by downloading a new utility call PBLaunch. This utility allows you to associate the .PBL extension with the PBLaunch EXE. Then when you double click a PBL to open it PBLaunch figures out which Application the Library is associated with and start  PowerBuilder for that Application.

You can also just run PBLaunch and it will show you a list of all valid applications in your INI and let you pick which one you to start.
