    Changing .mov File Association via Group Policy


    Am trying to find out whether it is possible to change the association of .mov files to open in Quicktime rather than Windows Media Player. I need to do this through Group Policy for all users.

    We are using Win 7 clients and Server 2008 R2

    If anyone knows of a simple step-by-step guide that would be great !

    Thanks !

    There's probably an easier way.

    But if you fire up reg edit, you'll be able to look through the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT section of the registry. Make the alterations on one machine, test it.

    You can then export a reg file, use Regedit's command line options (Lookie Lookie) to incorporate importing the reg file into a startup script.

    You can also use GPP to do it either computer or user based:
    Computer Conf->Preferences->Control Panel Settings->Folder Options->Right click->New->File Type
    User Conf->Preferences->Control Panel Settings->Folder Options->Right click->new->Open With
