I find your focus on the operating system fascinating.  Frescobaldi
contains _both_ editor and viewer, and it does not even consult Windows
about the textedit:// links.  With regard to Windows' treatment of
textedit://, it does not likely make a difference whether or not you
have Frescobaldi installed (unless Frescobaldi tries supporting the
links on some external viewers as well, but even then it is unlikely to
use Windows-specific mechanisms).

Trying to pick the wheat from the chaff, it would seem that your
complaint is actually with the LilyPond environment provided by the GUB
Windows installer.  The environment set up by this installer, as far as
I can gather from your complaint, does not contain a working
editor/viewer configuration for Point and Click.
