Problem setting open with default programs

Adobe Creative suite 5 master collection...

Specs: Vista 64bit

On one of my computers (Running 64bit Vista) I want to make the Adobe Fireworks the default programme to open .jpegs.

The problem I am having is that if I right click on the image to say 'open with', fireworks is not in the list, and if I then choose default programmes it is not there, and if I then search for it on my computer while in 'open with -> choose default programme -> browse', it still won't open.

The only way I can find to open a .jpeg in fireworks is to open fireworks first and browse for it in the programme (this is a much slower method).

I am wondering if you know of a way to make Fireworks appear in my default programmes list, or allow me to open a .jpeg with it by right clicking on the .jpeg.

Currently running Vista 64bit and Adobe Master Suite CS5.

Photoshop & Illustrator do not appear in the 'open with' menu either.

Options are:

ACDSee, Flash Catalyst, Paint, Window Picture Viewer, etc...

Just to note I am also running Master Suite CS5 on another computer running Windows 7 64bit, and when I right click any files like .jpeg, .png Photoshop, Illustrator and Fireworks all appear in this list.

if you go to open with and then browse to the program then click OK it should add it to the default list as well as now being associated with jpeg files.

This is the problem I am having - it doesn't. If I go to open with and browse and click on fireworks it opens with Flash Catalyst instead. And Fireworks does not then appear on my default list.

I'm having this problem too, and my dad's computer has the same problem! If somebody has a working solution it would be really helpful!
