If the shortcut is versioned, you should have *two* entries for TSVN
(one for the shortcut file itself, one for the shortcut target).
If you don't see those in the context menu, select the file, then use
the "File" menu in the explorer - you should have the menus visible there.

If however you really don't see any TSVN entry for that mar file, you
have to assign a different application than access with that filetype:

The problem is that Access turns those files into shortcuts, but your
assembly files are 'garbage' shortcuts for access because they're not
real access shortcuts.
