  • Milestone changed from Future to 1.3.x

The installer will set the HKCR key but I think this may be overridden by HKCU so maybe look to modifying both torrent and magnet association for this scenario.

There is a pull request related to this but I am not completely happy with the way we determine and set the keys and feel it needs some more thought.

I think setting both to use current user would be the best solution. It makes it easy for different users to use different clients and it also eliminates any possible permissions issues.

I also think that mering and possibly going further and adding a popup if the association fails would be good too.

I think the check is good to have that way if the user has a association setup already it wont break it so it can still be used till they resolve their issue but we also need a way of informing the user it failed so they know whats going on.
