Minor nit in Py24 installer: Deselecting register extensionsde-registers existing associations

Discussion in 'Python' started by Mike C. Fletcher, Sep 5, 2004.

  1. Yes, yes, I know I should just wait for SourceForge to come up so I can
    file a bug report, but that's going to be hours, and I'll be knee-deep
    in Gentoo by then.

    Just did an all-users install of Python 2.4a3 on Win2ksp4 where Python
    2.3.4 and Python 2.2 are installed. Overwrote already-installed Python
    2.4a1. Switched "register extensions" to the "X Not available", as I
    wanted to keep Python 2.3.4 as the default association for .py files.

    After installation, there are *no* associations with Python files, that
    is "assoc .py" on the command line shows that there's no "Python" file
    type remaining.

    Have fun,
    Mike

    I'll see what I can do about this. This extension-registration turns out
    to be really tricky, as MSI does not support conditional installation
    of extensions out of the box.
