File association tool

The xnview mp file association tool does not run when it's called from "settings=>integration" instead the windows assistant appears, where by the way the bmp extension is missing in spite of I associated it to xnview mp the first time I run the program after the setup.
But the file association tool it works indeed but you have to go to the xnview mp directory and use it directly from there. So I see two strange things;
1- The .bmp extension not being properly associated after I set this association during the xnview mp first run
2- The windows association assistant jumping in in place of the xnview mp association tool when you go to "setting=>integration=>run the file association tool)

Are these bugs or are what I should expect?

In this screen capture you can see the issues.

on new system like Windows 7 or 10, the standard windows assistant must be used...

That's a pity, the xnview tool works far better than windows assistant, like can be see in the capture windows have problems for associate some extensions like .bmp
