cannot accociate extension .BOM with progran

I need to associate .BOM with OrCad. When I choose Associate a file type or protocol with a Program from Default Programs, I get a list of extensions and programs. However .bom does not appear in the list and OrCad does not either.

..." browse to the Orcad executable.
