Writing archive types in registry

  • Currently PA writes empty archive extensions not associated with PA in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT. I wish that there were some way to prevent this. In other words, I wish that only those extensions specified by the user were written.

    One of the reasons is that those registry cleaning programs constantly find those empty extensions.

  • So don’t use them or get the program to ignore them :).

    I have used many over the years without any benefit whatsoever.

    They invariably result in something becoming broken, and only realising it after the event.

    That wouldn’t change the fact that registry entries for file types are cluttered. This is annoying when using RegEdit scrolling through r01-99 to z01-99.

    I don’t play games. So what are Quake PK3 registry entries doing there? I don’t like it when programs start doing something that user doesn’t tell it to do.
