Try this:
* make a copy of TortoiseBlame.exe in the install folder
* delete the original exe
* copy notepad.exe there, rename that copy to TortoiseBlame.exe
* do a blame

Since notepad opens the file passed as the first parameter, you should
see the blame in notepad (the log file and the other params are ignored
by notepad, but we don't need those for now).
