    Can you do it under GPP>Control Panel Settings>Folder options. New>Open with - Set the file extention and Associated Program.

    Note - I've not actually tested this.

    Drop into a command prompt and check out:

    assoc and ftype.

    Code:
    FTYPE [fileType[=[openCommandString]]]
    
      fileType  Specifies the file type to examine or change
      openCommandString Specifies the open command to use when launching files
                        of this type.
    
    Type FTYPE without parameters to display the current file types that
    have open command strings defined.  FTYPE is invoked with just a file
    type, it displays the current open command string for that file type.
    Specify nothing for the open command string and the FTYPE command will
    delete the open command string for the file type.  Within an open
    command string %0 or %1 are substituted with the file name being
    launched through the assocation.  %* gets all the parameters and %2
    gets the 1st parameter, %3 the second, etc.  %~n gets all the remaining
    parameters starting with the nth parameter, where n may be between 2 and 9,
    inclusive.  For example:
    
        ASSOC .pl=PerlScript
        FTYPE PerlScript=perl.exe %1 %*
    
    would allow you to invoke a Perl script as follows:
    
        script.pl 1 2 3
    
    If you want to eliminate the need to type the extensions, then do the
    following:
    
        set PATHEXT=.pl;%PATHEXT%
    
    and the script could be invoked as follows:
    
        script 1 2 3
    Stuff the relevant commands into a startup script.

    found a quick and dirty way to sort my problem
    microsoft have a fix it to make sure office documents open in the program rather than Internet explorer pages.

    It works for xp and windows 7 deployed via gpo.

    Thanks for all your help
