Hello, I recently posted a similar question and got many good pieces of advice, but the method that is now working perfectly for me uses a small ShareWare utility called FileTyper. This is a simple drag and drop utility. You drag the file over it, a quick "flash" and you have a double clickable Mathematica file. See the Mathematica Typer at this link... http://www.ugcs.caltech.edu/~dazuma/filetyper/autotyperlib.html I know that in theory this shouldn't be needed since the files are platform independent, but it does work!
