|Summary||0002442: [WIN7 & others] gvedit.exe: auto association of .gv files & relevant registry entries|
|Description||GV2.38 on Win7: .gv-files are not automatically associated to gvedit.exe upon graphviz installation. A manual association is saved in the registry with the full path to gvedit.exe under [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\gvedit.exe\shell\open\command = "C:\Program Files (x86)\Graphviz2.38\bin\gvedit.exe" "%1"].|
NB: A short path to gvedit is not accepted even if gvedit is known to the system, i.e. if the graphviz/bin folder is in PATH.
After any graphviz update installation, the path above is dead. Moreover, it prohibits to manually re-associate .gv-files to gvedit.exe now residing in another folder.
Feature request (for gvedit at least):
- kill the association registry entries upon de-installation
- set the association registry entries upin installation
Not sure if this can really be solved with an approach using PATH.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Along with this, it would nice to figure out how to have Graphviz added to the PATH during installation without wiping out data in some cases.|
