If you could check in the folder where the .exe is, there should be a
file names Croquet.ini or Squeak.ini (similar to the .exe file name).
Open that file up with a text editor, and look for a line like:
If that line is in the .ini file, the the VM will only open that image
(no matter what other file you drop on it, or how  you start that vm).
 If you want to just be able to drop an image on the executable, then
make sure this line isn't in the .ini file (it is not required).
