Eduard,

I have no German Windows at hand (i use english Windows 7 with german Keyboard layout)
I have UAC in place, so whenever I install something then I am asked for admin password.
pls check and report following registry settings

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.svg : there should be an element "OpenWithProgIds" under which there should be one element with content "inkscape.svg"
also I see here
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.svg\OpenWithProgids
and
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\.svg
where there is one element containing "inkscape.svg"

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\inkscape.svg : this should handle open actions using inkscape
