Installing GIMP 2.10 on top of existing 2.8 installation leaves broken context menu entry
GIMP version: 2.10 installed on top of 2.8
Note: bug reporters are expected to have verified the bug still exists either in the last stable version of GIMP or on updated development code (master branch).
Operating System: Windows
Package: Installer from gimp.org (gimp-2.10.18-setup-2.exe)
Description of the bug
#2216 Same exact issue from previously reported bug that was previously closed, but wasn't fixed.
Summary: installing GIMP 2.10 on top of an existing 2.8 installation fails to update the systemfileassociation registry key associated with the context menu.
Computer\\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\\SystemFileAssociations\\image\\shell\\Edit with GIMP\\command => "C:\\Program Files\\GIMP 2\\bin\\gimp-2.8.exe" "%1"
Since gimp-2.8.exe is no longer present, the context menu opens up an intermediary pane asking how you want to open the file every single time you use the context entry.
Is the bug reproducible? Always
- Install GIMP 2.8
- Install GIMP 2.10 on top of the existing GIMP 2.8 installation
- Right click and select "Edit with GIMP" in the context menu
- Receive "How do you want to open..." selector pane
Current winver is: 1909 (OS Build 18363.720)
"Edit with GIMP" context menu will open the image to be edited in GIMP.
"Edit with GIMP" context menu is pointing at a no longer existing file and isn't redeclared by GIMP 2.10 installer, so is left pointing at a bad executable target.
