Well, that's a surprise!
.ax is a DirectShow filter.
The documentation doesn't mention anything about making a direct call to them with "OpenConfiguration" as a passed argument.
That's pretty clever, like a batch file that calls itself as a reg file.
I've never run the installer, just extracted the component files. Didn't think to look at install_script.iss.

Of course there is GUI - just go to LAV filters configuration folder and run it, side to this whenever filter is active it can display icon on Taskbar - just activate it (Enable System Tray Icon).

LAV-Filters don't have a GUI for setup.
What is the source of the screenshot?
