Macro for registering and unregistering file extensions in NSIS scripts.

Can easily be used in installer AND uninstaller sections and functions. Won't overwrite any variables like $0 $1 ..... and $R0 $R1....... .

Usage

!include "FileAssociation.nsh"
...
# later, inside a section:
${registerExtension} "c:\myplayer.exe" ".mkv" "MKV_File"
 
${unregisterExtension} ".mkv" "MKV File"

FileAssociation.nsh

 1. !include "FileAssociation.nsh"
 2. [Section|Function]
      ${FileAssociationFunction} "Param1" "Param2" "..." $var
    [SectionEnd|FunctionEnd]
 
 FileAssociationFunction=[RegisterExtension|UnRegisterExtension]

 ${RegisterExtension} "[executable]" "[extension]" "[description]"
 
"[executable]"     ; executable which opens the file format
                   ;
"[extension]"      ; extension, which represents the file format to open
                   ;
"[description]"    ; description for the extension. This will be display in Windows Explorer.
                   ;
 
 
 ${UnRegisterExtension} "[extension]" "[description]"
 
"[extension]"      ; extension, which represents the file format to open
