# MonoGame Pipeline

I've been having some problems with the pipeline in MonoGame. I'm using Visual Studio Community Edition 2015 with MonoGame 3.4. I used the installer rather than NuGet if that helps with the problem. Originally the templates went into another users folder and I had to copy them out. I have all of the templates installed in the correct area but when I double click the Content.mgcb icon on the right side of the screen it opens up this file:

#----------------------------- Global Properties ----------------------------#

/outputDir:bin/Windows
/intermediateDir:obj/Windows
/platform:Windows
/config:
/profile:Reach
/compress:False

#-------------------------------- References --------------------------------#

#---------------------------------- Content ---------------------------------#


Thanks!

• Right click the .mgcb file and choose "Open WIth". What options do you have available? The correct program should be called "Monogame Pipeline" – tandersen Nov 22 '15 at 21:39

As mentioned by @tandersen, if you right click the Content.mgcb file in Solution Explorer you can choose "Open With..." to get the following dialog.
On my machine the Pipeline.exe is located here:
C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\MonoGame\v3.0\Tools

Once you've added it and "Set as Default" it should open by double clicking the Content.mgcb file.
