Launching Maestro opens Notepad instead with some script. What should I do?

This happens because the file association is incorrect. You should ensure that files with the extension .sh and .py are not associated with a default application.

To remove the association for shell scripts (.sh), open the registry editor (Start → Run → regedit) and first back up your registry with File → Export. Then navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE → SOFTWARE → Classes → * → shell. When you left-click on "shell", you should see in the right panel a (Default) value of "notepad.exe %1". Right-click on "shell" in the left-hand window and select Delete.
