R8 > R9:
It installed nicely (I kept the version R8 during installation in parallel),
and it did a good job (still with blue frames around a selected element).
But the assignement to execute the programm by the file extension *.ope did not work.
I had to manipulate the registry, and to remove the R8 specs; and I restarted the system.
And then manually to search for the program -programs(86) ....- because it did not appear as a proposal.
Then it was assigned correctly.
Though, the icon in front of the *.ope file is very small.

I pulled the R9 off the openelement general home page.
I had the behaviour a few weeks before when the R9 was not officially released, but was downloadable.
At that time I reverted back to R8.

Never mind these very small dissonances (easy to fix), this is a VERY NICE TOOL.
Thank you for your work.

Hi,

I checked, if you use right-click and "Open As...", R9 is available in the list of choices. Though it's inconvenient it does not set itself as default execution.

Well, here its was not available (twice as described).
That situation should not happen, I know. Because it's standard Windows behaviour.
But I think one can exist with that situation.
Win-7 Prof (US-english).
Both apps were shown in the system Program and Features. But none was accessible.
None was selectable (right click on *.ope). Neither selectable out of the offered list, nor searchable.
Search could find the openelemente.exe, but not activate it. Very strange and confusing.

I installed the R9 in parallel to the existing R8, and I did not remove any settings.

Skip that matter, it's running here - but may be someone else might come up with the same situation...
