Probably the easiest way to fix this, but doesn't always work like you
expect is as follows...

 - Hold down the SHIFT key and RIGHT-CLICK on one of the .c source

 - Select `Open With' from the pop-up menu.

 - Scroll through the list of programs to find your C++ program (if it's
not there then click on `Other' and find the executable file for the
program on your HDD manualy.

 - Click on the program in the list and then click the box that says
`Always use this program to open this type of file'.

 - Click on the OK button.

If all goes well, then your C++ program should open up and load the
appropriate C file.  If it does not, then you're best bet is to try to
re-install the program so that it will be able to associate the file
type itself in the install.
