Global Mapper v25.0

Windows open with "$GM_APP_NAME$"

My windows 10 file right click menu for .gmw and various data files is only giving options to open with "$GM_APP_NAME$". This appears twice, once for each version of 24.1 & 25.0.

Any ideas how to change this to reflect the normal program name e.g. "Global Mapper Version"?

All the usual Windows settings for selecting default programs for file type, or manually selecting the GM .exe still result in a right click option of "$GM_APP_NAME$"
