Magnet links not working in Chrome with deluge

Very annoying and happens all the time with other torrent clients too: Windows magnet links may stop working.

Here are two .reg files you could use to fix this instantly. You may have to change the paths appropriately if you are not using deluge.

For 64-bit windows:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\magnet]
@="URL:MAGNET URI"
"URL Protocol"=""

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\magnet\DefaultIcon]
@="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Deluge\\deluge.exe"

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\magnet\shell]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\magnet\shell\open]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\magnet\shell\open\command]
@="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Deluge\\deluge.exe \"%1\""

For 32-bit Windows:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\magnet]
@="URL:MAGNET URI"
"URL Protocol"=""

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\magnet\DefaultIcon]
@="C:\\Program Files\\Deluge\\deluge.exe"

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\magnet\shell]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\magnet\shell\open]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\magnet\shell\open\command]
@="C:\\Program Files\\Deluge\\deluge.exe \"%1\""
