61  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: File Association Bug when Updating your Arduino Environment in Windows on: February 11, 2011, 05:05:01 am
Searching the Windows Registry I found that the .PDE extension redirects to Processing.Document key.  Processing document invokes -> C:\Program Files\arduino-0021\Processing.exe "%1".  These registry keys must have been installed during the initial Uno installation process.  It is strange that there is no actual Processing.exe file in this directory.  A simple copy install of a newer IDE will not change these registry keys, and they will not update when you try to change the file association from the control panel.  It would be nice if any of this were documented.

I have tried editing this key from arduino-0021 to arduino-0022 in regedit, but exucuting the IDE changes it back to -0021.  I am going to stay with -0021 for the time being.

I would recommend that anyone that wishes to retain the "double click on .pde file to start IDE" functionality avoid updating until this underlying issue is addressed.

Best Regards,
George

Thanks for the input.

More searches gave me these:
http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,6501.0.html
http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,49644.0.html

The problem seems common.  I believe there is a problem with IDE upgrades that is creating a hole in the SystemUntouched philosophy.

I suppose it could thought of as Windows issue but most programs handle this upon install/update.

Back to my research, any tips are welcome.  Thanks again for the help.

Thanks.  It did seem that easy.  The only problem I have is that file association for .PDE files can not be changed from 0021 to 0022.  Editing file assocation from Windows Control Panel->Folder Options->File Types does not resolve the issue.

Any tips?

Soory for the noob question.  I have IDE 0021 running just fine on Win XP with Uno board.

I see that IDE is now updated to 0022 and want to update.

I have donloaded the zip file, there is no setup file in the Zip that I can find.  I'm wondering what the correct update process is.  Tried searching forum and Google but no luck.  Is it as simple as copying the folder structure into "C:\Program Files" and updating file association for .pde files?

Thanks in Advance,
George
