I have just installed gmsh and am learning to use the software. I am
running on a Windows 7 64-bit machine with notepad.exe installed. In the
Geometry module, when I select "Edit file" I get this error message:

Unable to open file 'notepad.exe'

I followed your instructions in response to a similar query (
Tools > Options > Advanced > Text editor command: default is "notepad.exe

You specified "it should point to a binary file launching the notepad". Can
you explain what this means? Do I need to modify the default Text editor

Thanks for your help,
