Summary0002442: [WIN7 & others] gvedit.exe: auto association of .gv files & relevant registry entries
DescriptionGV2.38 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.
TagsNo 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.
