@schumerth Please follow below steps to do so

 

Open Windows and search for regedit.exe (Registery Editor)

Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER and search for Vivado.Project.1 and update the default parameter with 2015.1 (you will see 2014.4 in your case)

 

Please refer screenshots this would help you.

Hi

 

in general, to control file association, we recommend to follow the instructions from http://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/60637.htm

We do not recommend hacking the Windows Registry. We tried it on recent versions of Vivado and it no longer works.

 

 

Best regards

Dries
