7-Zip: Registry Entries

I've used PortableFileAssociator to associate 7-Zip as the default application for opening .zip files. I know this probably isn't supported, but it makes my life easier. Everytime I extract a zip file and exit the program, entries are left at HKCU\Software\7-zip. Again I know this was probably never intended, but does anybody know why this is happening?

Just checking

You are associating it with the launcher (X:\PortableApps\7-ZipPortable\7-ZipPortable.exe), not the app itself?

If you associate it with the app (X:\PortableApps\7-ZipPortable\App\7-Zip\7z.exe) directly, then it will do exactly what you're describing.

I checked it a couple times

I checked it a couple times to make sure. Here's the code from PFA:

[7Zip]
mode=zip|rar|7z|gz|tar
title=Open with 7-Zip
command=PDRIVE\Programs\Installed\ComputerTools\7-ZipPortable\7-ZipPortable.exe "%1"
default=1

So I'm definitely associating it with 7-ZipPortable.exe. I was just wondering if I'm the only one seeing this problem.

Wrong Place

You'll need to ask in the PortableFileAssociator topic as this has nothing to do with 7-Zip Portable.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

That's what I thought and he said it was a 7-Zip issue. I'll figure something out.
