AFAIK, there isn't such a way. We have to check both hives.

Until this is fixed, it is possible to disable file associations
through one of tlmgr options. It is also possible to add/remove file
associations only for chosen packages with (command line only):

  tlmgr postaction [--w32mode=user|admin] [--fileassocmode=1|2]
[install|remove] fileassoc [pkg]...

see tlmgr --help for more details.
