Hi Alex,

Since Code Writer is based on Microsoft's Universal Windows Platform, it doesn't install with a .exe like Win32 apps do.  Microsoft handles the installation of the app, and they generally hide it in system folders like other UWP Windows Store apps.

Code Writer does support protocol activation though.  See the documentation for info on that.  You might be able to use that syntax to open a file from the command line.  The only thing is that UWP apps might require you to have already opened the file once through a dialog before we are permitted by Windows to access it.  This is because UWP apps are all security sandboxed and safe.

I'll look into that

The latest build of this product (v4.2.42) was released 3 years ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
