  • @harrymc, thank you for your reply. I installed the 64-bit version. I use Adobe Illustrator to open SVG files.

Same case by here. I uninstalled it lot of times, both Git and original versions. Last thing I did was restart Windows 10. After booting, I tried to install the original version again (I remember clearly it was the v0.1.1), and it worked perfectly, without needing to refresh or set a default viewer! Well, that is all. Hope this can give you a hand.
