Solution for replacing Notepad.exe on Windows


I’m giving Sublime a whirl and I must say I’m impressed, but I’ve noticed there doesn’t currently seem to be support for replacing Notepad on Windows using the “debugger trick”, which is a bit of a shame. Rather than just come on and bitch about it though I’ve knocked up a small launcher that handles this, along with a BAT file for making the relevant changes to the registry - seems to do the job for me (I’ve only tested it with the Alpha though).
