Default Version of CANoe/CANalyzer and Specific Version Selection

Last updated: 2018-07-12

Which CANoe/CANalyzer version is opened by default when double clicking a configuration file on a WINDOWS operating system when multiple versions are installed?

How can I select a specific program version to be used?


The WINDOWS default program for CANoe and CANalyzer is handled by a separate background application and is not directly assigned by WINDOWS. You see this program, CANtools Version Selector, when you select open with from a configuration file.

This program chooses the last installed Service Pack (SP) of the newest main release. Here are two examples of tools installed:

CANoe version 10.0 main release
CANoe version 10.0 SP5 --> will be chosen as default program

CANoe version 11.0 --> will be chosen as default program
CANoe version 9.0 SP6

It is highly recommended to keep the version selector handling the versions and not to assign a specific CANoe/CANalyzer version directly as a windows default program as this may lead to complications when installing the next version of the tool.

The following note describes a way to use a specific version of a tool. 


Selecting a specific CANoe/CANalyzer version from the WINDOWS context menu is possible by adding the version(s) to the Send to menu..

To do this proceed as follows: 

  • Open WINDOWS explorer.
  • Enter address [shell:sendto] or manually navigate to C:\Users[user]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo.
  • Add the links to the executables of your tools e.g. CANoe64.exe (Version 11.0.35) and CANoe64.exe (Version 11.0.36) in this directory. --> The Send to menu now has two additional entries.
  • Rename the link to the exact tool/version number you want to be shown.
