Okay, I've looked at the registry a bit, and it seems like I can register App Paths either under HKLM (for the whole machine) or under HKCU (for the current user). However, both seem to have issues. [...]
As I said in a previous email, keep away from App Paths, and in particular, don't register an executable under any name but its own.
There's very little documentation that I could find on what App Paths should do, so all you've got to go on is experiment and looking at what others do. No-one that I have seen ever registers an exe under a different name.
Actually, I've seen two on my own PC; one was a game, the other the Adobe SVG viewer.
And some programs (4NT, for example) expect the App Path name to match the exe name (and give a broken user experience if that isn't true).
