Maaan read the post well!
Ok...
Translation: (due to bad English)
- He wants to add a functionality of opening files in his app.
- He wants to register his app into the list of programs installed (similar to installers) so that he can do Right click -> Open with... -> His app.

So, I canīt really help you, because I didnīt do anything like registering my applications into the installed programs (which can show in "Open with...")
But I do know one thing:
- You will need both installer and uninstaller.

Hope this helps other to solve this problem.
