    .swf file association

    I've spent so much time this week scripting for Laptop Builds/Software installations that my brain is just shot.

    I'm looking for a quick script to change the .swf association to open in IE by default.

    Not an issue anymore: After talking to myself and scratching my head I finally got it working...

    Sleep sounds like a good idea!

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\ShockwaveFlash.ShockwaveFlash]
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\ShockwaveFlash.ShockwaveFlash\DefaultIcon]
    @="C:\\Program Files\\macrom~1\\macrom~1.0\\flashm~1\\flash.exe,2"
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\ShockwaveFlash.ShockwaveFlash\Shell]
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\ShockwaveFlash.ShockwaveFlash\Shell\Open]
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\ShockwaveFlash.ShockwaveFlash\Shell\Open\Command]
    @="\"C:\\Program Files\\Internet Explorer\\IEXPLORE.EXE\" %1"
    Imported into the registry... Now going to Global Workstations the registry fragment and fingers crossed.

    I'm using GameKiller2 to tackle our SWF game issue so I needed to force it all via IE but didn't want the user to have any hassle.
