I have upgraded to version 10.5, however, when I click on a saved workflow or app, it attempts to open it using the previous version, and I see the screen for 10.0. I am forced to open the file by opening Alteryx first, then Ctrl+O the file I want. I have already worked on the files using the new version, so I receive an error message when my computer attempts to open it with 10.0.
I have removed all references to 10.0 in the Program Files folder, and tried to navigate to the latest version by using Open With... But it still tries to open using 10.0.
I agree with @SergioD's methods to fix the issue. It sounds like some registry entries weren't updated. For what it's worth, the registry entries could reside in one of two spots:
1) If you've never had a non-admin version installed, then HKLM will be the only entries: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes\Alteryx xxxx\Shell\yyyy\Command
2) If you've ever had a non-admin version installed, then HKCU will trump the HKLM: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Alteryx xxxx\Shell\yyyy\Command.
I like having a non-admin version next to my admin and this causes problems whenever the non-admin is installed. It will switch all my registry entries to the C:\Users\... directory and then my admin install no longer is the default for opening files. I just update the registry whenever it's pointing to C:\Users\... instead of C:\Program Files. Going through the open with method or control panel method is much safer, but I just wanted to provide the actual registry entries for anyone interested.
I tried the Control Panel change first, but I wasn't able to fix the problem. The problem was fixed with the registry edit method, though. Basically what you need to do, I found, is go to both registry locations, find the AlteryxGUI.exe file in there. Open each of those .exe files in the two locations. Determine which one launches the latest (correct) version, and simply copy the correct one over to the other (incorrect) location. That's what I had to do, at least. Don't know if it'll be the exact same for others. Good luck, people!! :-D
