How do I get a Windows program to show up when I select "open with"?

    I have a Windows text editor program (KEDIT) that I prefer over any of
    my Mac programs. So it's installed on Windows 7 under VMWare Fusion.

    When I right-click on a file in Finder, I am given the choice to "Open
    with…". But my Windows editor doesn't show up there.

    How can I get the editor into that list?

    Don't know if you can do this with Fusion, but that's a feature of
    Parallels Desktop. When you build a Winodws VM, you can create links to
    Winodws apps that can be associated with a file type through the
    Finder's "Open with" feature. I don't know if Fusion has this.

    In settings under "Applications" -> "Default Applications"

    - check the box "Open your Mac files..."
    - then configure it
