This file does not have a program associated
So I Reformatted my PC and installed the Launcher + UE4.15.
I am able to make a project and load a existing project whilst UE4 is open. After Setting the .uproject default program to UE4Editor.exe I am now able to open them directly.
However when I try to load a project from inside the launcher both new and old, I am prompted with the error message
I am unsure what to do.

Thank you for the report. The launcher is supposed to be registering uproject file associations for you, we are looking into why that could no longer be working.
In the meantime, the best way to workaround the problem would to manually register using the correct tool, provided with the launcher.
Here is a step by step example on Windows 10
Please let me know if anyone is having issues with this, too.
Navigate to the launcher install directory, and find UnrealVersionSelector.exe
For me, it is located here:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Epic Games\Launcher\Engine\Binaries\Win64\UnrealVersionSelector.exe
Right-click the exe and select Create Shortcut option.
On this new shortcut file, right-click and select properties. Then, in the Target field, add -fileassociations to the end, and press Apply. It should look like this:
Now right-click the shortcut again, this time select Run as Administrator. After a short time, uproject files should now work correctly, including context menus items that look like so:
I have solved my problem by copy the content of Launcher > Binaries > Win64 and paste to the 4_15 > Binaries > Win64 after that I have executed the UnrealVersionSelector.exe inside the 4_15 Win64.
A dialog window ask me if it's the directory is an unreal engine installation, click on yes and a message appear "Successfull registration" everything work now.
I hope that can help you.
