2 File Associations
hoping someone may be able to help with a problem i'm ahving with a school i deal with. This is a Primary School who have both Microsoft office and open office (Because of cost they can't afford MS office on all machines, and they don't really like OO).
Is there a way of setting the file associations with 2 programs.
first MS office then Open Office. At the moment i'm using Mandatory profiles and in here i've set the Default to MS office HKEY_USERS\STAFFNEW\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Cur rentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.doc
I know how to change this to a different program, but is there a way to set this to Open office if MS office isn't installed. Because at the min, all of the programs that don't have MS office installed default to Wordpad.
Any help would be appreciated.
I would do this in your logon script.. first do a check if office is installed.. if yes then link the .DOC to ms office... if not link it to Open Office.
Thanks for that. Didn't think about doing it that way. I'll have a go when i'm next there.
Cheers for your help.
