Without a bit more information, I'm not sure that anyone will be able to help much. What happens when you try to open a MOBI file?

I created a .Mobi file using Calibre. When I double clicked the .Mobi file it asked what program to use to open it, I selected Amazon Previewer however, it can't display it. But if I go to File -> Open and select the .Mobi file or if I drag and drop it works.
I just want to set the default application it loads with to Amazon Previewer.
I think it may be because AP is based on Java and it loads the javaw.exe

The Amazon Previewer doesn't seem to support accepting a filename passed to it by the OS when it is launched.

There is no way to make this happen other than to petition Amazon to add the functionality in some future revision.
