Windows 7: Multiple file types association for a single file extension

Multiple file types association for a single file extension


I am currently setting up my development environment for NSIS.
The '.nsi' extension got automatically linked to a 'NSIS.Script' file type in the registry, which adds some context menu entries to compile the scripts.

I would like to use my preffered text editor Notepad++.

Rather than adding an 'open' entry in the 'NSIS.Script' file type, I would like to use the default 'Notepad++_file' file type from the registry as a complementary file type for the '.nsi' extension.
I find that way of proceeding cleaner.

Is it possible? How to do that?

Many thanks!
