File Descriptions hijacked by PTVS
I just installed VS2012 and PTVS for VS2012. Previously I had VS2010 and PTVS for VS2010. Both installs are on a new machine.
Now all of the file types I had associated in Windows to open with Notepad++ are now labeled "Python source file" in the description (see Control Panel | All Control Panel Items | Default Programs | Set Associations"). Also, desktop and File
explorer icons show the Frame and PY label icon used by VS2012. Finally Windows File Explorer in Details View shows the Item Type = "Python source file".
The affected types are any and all that were previously associated with Notepad++ such as .mak, .ini, .lua, .cpp, and so on. Python extensions, however are still associated with python.exe which was previously loaded.
Any ideas what might be going on? I'm blaming this on PTVS since 1) it was after a PTVS install, 2) the icon is from VS2012, and 3) the type "Python source file", but I could be wrong.
