I just installed RT 5.5 on my Windows 7 PC alongside RT 5.4. Unfortunately when I would try to use Windows Explorer to right-click a file and either choose “Open with Rawtherapee” or “Open with…” and then select “Rawtherapee” Windows would only start RT 5.4. And if I tried to use “Open with… -> Choose default program”, Windows refused to recognize RT 5.5. Sure I could choose it but as soon as I clicked “ok”, Windows would throw my choice away.
To get around this problem, I used Regedit to replace all references to 5.4 with 5.5.
Now my question is this - Has anyone experienced the following behavior:
When I start RT 5.5 using Windows Explorer and the right click- “Open with…” and then select “Rawtherapee” ( not the right-click and “Open with Rawtherapee” option), the opening of the main dialog is preceded by the opening of a DOS RT console window which I have to manually close when I exit the main RT dialog.
Any ideas as to why this is happening?
