[BUG] Installer: Wrong registry value #3595

The Windows installer writes incorrect values to the registry, preventing a DB SQlite file from opening.

The "HKCR\SQLiteStudio.db\shell\Open\Command" value uses a slash (and not a backslash) in the exe path: Executable file not found.

This same value uses single quotes ' instead of a double quotes " around the variable %1: DB file not loaded.

These errors are present in the other registry entries of SQLiteStudio.

Strangely, the slash does not interfere with the "HKCR\SQLiteStudio.db\DefaultIcon" value (Meh, Windows...)

Operating system

Windows 7, Windows 10

SQLiteStudio v3.2.1

Also, if the path to SQLiteStudio.exe has spaces in, that needs to be quoted too. So instead of
C:\Program Files\SQLiteStudio/SQLiteStudio.exe '%1'
it should be
"C:\Program Files\SQLiteStudio\SQLiteStudio.exe" "%1"
or even
"%ProgramFiles%\SQLiteStudio\SQLiteStudio.exe" "%1" (but then the type has to be REG_EXPAND_SZ, not REG_SZ)
