    bug on uninstall/install?

    Stuart Fleming
      I am wondering if the issue I entered on this posting could be considered a bug:

      .jws default program is notepad, not jdeveloper

      Here is my situation:
      I am on windows 7, have two editions of jdeveloper, (not explicitly relevant) and (installation directory: c:\oracle\middleware\jdevelper etc)

      I uninstall and install the latest version in directory c:\jdeveloper.

      Next day I notice that notepad is the program set to open the .jws file. Try to add Jdeveloper, but it is not listed in the programs list, nor does pressing browse and selecting jdeveloper work.

      Open a dos window. running the ftype command, I see that jdeveloper is still set as the old location:

      JDeveloper.jwsFile="C:\Oracle\Middleware\jdeveloper\jdeveloper.exe" "%1" %*
      JDeveloper.javaFile="C:\Oracle\Middleware\jdeveloper\jdeveloper.exe" "%1" %*
      JDeveloper.jprFile="C:\Oracle\Middleware\jdeveloper\jdeveloper.exe" "%1" %*
      JDeveloper.jspFile="C:\Oracle\Middleware\jdeveloper\jdeveloper.exe" "%1" %*

      Had to manually re-set the file type assoications using the directions stipulated in the other posting.

      1. Either removing the file type association when un-installing
      2. Updating the file type assocation when installing

      Thank you,
