Some help could be found below 

Also if you wish you can use EmacsW32 or EmacsPortable to manage associations.

I am trying to make emacsclientw the default program for opening different file types, e.g. fortran source with the extension .for, in windows 7.

In order to do this I rightclick on a file and chosse 'Open with".
I choose browse and select the emacsclientw.exe which I have unzipped in \Program Files(x86)\emacs\bin.

I have two problems with this:

1: The same as explained here ( occurs. Simply, I do not get emacsclientw.exe in the list when I choose it.

I have tried emacs.exe as well with the same results. And I have tried to unzip to other locations with no luck.

I do not understand whether this has to do with emacs, windows 7 or the unzip utility (7-zip).

Any suggestions?

2: emacsclientw needs to be run as
"C:\Program Files (x86)\emacs\bin\emacsclientw.exe" -na runemacs.exe -c ""
if I understand correctly.

I need to create a shortcut manually to do this.
Would it be useful to distribute this shortcut by default or to make emacsclientw possible to run without it?
