Can't set CUETools 2.2.0+ as default app for cue files

I am using Windows 7 with CUETools 2.1.9 and recently i noticed that there were new updates available but any version from 2.2.0 onwards doesn't let me set .cue extensions to open with CueTools by default. Even tried using windows built in app via the control panel -> default programs -> associate a file type or protocol with a program, and that doesn't work either. The CUETools app only shows up with 2.1.9. What can i do to fix it since this is the only thing holding me back from using the latest version.

Please check the following registry settings:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\CUETools.exe\shell\open\command
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\cue_auto_file\shell\open\command

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Classes\Applications\CUETools.exe\shell\open\command
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Classes\cue_auto_file\shell\open\command


They probably still contain the initially assigned 2.1.9, e.g:
Value name: (Default)
Value data: "C:\foo\CUETools_2.1.9\CUETools.exe" "%1"
