      Description

      If I create a file with a custom extension (say, .gmat) and associate it with GMAT.exe in Windows, I should be able to double-click the file and have it open in GMAT.

      Right now this doesn't work because when GMAT opens, it can't find the startup file. I haven't confirmed, but I'm guessing it's because Windows opens GMAT in the working directory of my file, and GMAT looks in the working directory for gmat_startup_file.txt.

      This would be extremely useful behavior, and I believe the fix is to make GMAT looks in the same folder as GMAT.exe for the startup file, not in the current working directory.
