Isn't there a "Browse" button there?  If there is, just navigate to
the directory where you have the Emacs executables, and select the
executable you want.  My advice is to select runemacs.exe for file
associations.  And if you are in the habit of having an Emacs session
open at all times, you should associate files with emacsclientw.exe

I don't see how would that help you resolve the problem, if you don't
know which of the 4 possible executables to associate with the files.
