For MSI setups we _never_ overwrite current user (HKCU) file association defaults like other programs do.
They often simply grab your existing associations (VLC is a good example) which I find unnerving.

We merely register the new associations and everything that is required so that Windows can see that Resonic supports certain file types.

If you want to open them with Resonic you have to "Open with" and "Always open with" Resonic.

So far this is the only non-hacky way to offer a non-invasive file associations support.
I'll see if this could possibly be extended in future versions.

Besides, Resonic is also registered as "Default app" for music playback. You have to pick it though.
Once you do, all file associations that can be used will be used.

There are a few places where you can set defaults. Default apps, defaults per file type, and defaults per program.
