I'm having a problem opening .c/.cpp/.h files. Sometimes eclipse tries to open these files in notepad and this does not occur always. For instance, I have added 5 files (.c/.cpp/.h) and I try to open all 5 files and for one of the file eclipse will pop-up the notepad and throws a exception that these files cannot be opened. The files i'm trying to open are located on a remote system. I scanned the eclipse log file (<workspace>\.metadata\.log) to check if there are an error or exception. The log file seems to be clean and could not find anything suspicious.

Notepad pop-up looks like

I tried looking for the context menu; Open with and it was set to Remote C/C++ Editor

Finally the properties of the .c/.cpp/.h files

Has anyone on this forum faced this issue anytime ? Please suggest what could have gone wrong and what is the fix?

Details :
Windows XP Prof Edition, SP3
Eclipse EE 3.7.0
CDT 8.0
