Removing Trialversion on Win 10

Post by UR_ » Sun Jan 22, 2017 1:09 pm

I think, there is as issue with my installation, using win 10 64bit (Home and same on Pro)
Behaviour can reproduced by these steps:
- Install Qcad using "qcad-3.16.3-trial-win64-installer.msi" or "qcad-3.16.4-trial-win64-installer.msi"
- start qcad.exe elevated to admin rights
- remove Pro-Extension

- restart qcad.exe, and everything is fine
- exit qcad
- double-clicking a dxf-file on desktop causing this popup

- after finish, we are in trialmode again

BTW opening same dxf-file with open dialog from qcad works.

looks like Win 10 is aware of renaming some *.dll to *.disabled
Win 7 64 bit Pro works as expected
Thank you for your attention!

i found a workaround (quick and dirty)
It works, but i dont know why
In registry these entries can be found:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\prg_dxf]
@="DXF Drawing"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\prg_dxf\DefaultIcon]
@="C:\\WINDOWS\\Installer\\{AC843552-BE60-4FBB-AA4A-47A6CAACF32B}\\ico_qcaddoc.ico,0"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\prg_dxf\shell]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\prg_dxf\shell\open]
@="Open"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\prg_dxf\shell\open\command]
@="\"C:\\Program Files\\QCAD\\qcad.exe\" \"%1\""
"command"=hex(7):32,00,4f,00,7a,00,4d,00,60,00,52,00,45,00,37,00,5e,00,41,00,\
61,00,3d,00,56,00,4d,00,5e,00,6a,00,72,00,65,00,2d,00,32,00,3e,00,4c,00,66,\
00,37,00,6a,00,2b,00,51,00,60,00,61,00,72,00,44,00,67,00,38,00,57,00,7a,00,\
5b,00,61,00,2b,00,5e,00,4e,00,48,00,20,00,22,00,25,00,31,00,22,00,00,00,00,\
00
Deleting red entry stops misbehaviour.
