vbox file association modified by installer without agreements => Fixed in SVN

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

I'm using another application that has already registered the .vbox file extension for its need and I use it really often. Istalling virtualbox has modified this assiciation for the .vbox files to be opened by virtualbox and I can't get it back to work (including by modifying the registry)

Could it be possible to add an option in the installer to disable the automatic .vbox file association? It is breaking a corporate master we have here so virtualbox can't be allowed to be installed anymore.
