I've followed the guide and edited the registry value.

But whenever I click "Edit script" this is the screen that pops up:

And it doesn't remember my choice. Double clicking to run the script works fine.

Ideas?

AFAIK there should be an option available like "always run with this application" (click "More apps" to enlarge the dialog!) ?

Question: Once I had to use duplicate backslashes for one registry setting that is pointing to a manifest file (Win7). Are there any specific rules regarding single vs duplicate slashing?

I'm not sure. Just usually to specify file paths in registry single slashes are used.
