    Registry command to associate file with program

    A wonderful new piece of software generates TIF image files, which don't seem to be associated with a viewer on many of our PCs, causing a few headaches for me!

    I've been going round a few manually through Tools > Folder Options > File Types > New etc and linking them with the Windows Picture And Fax viewer which seems to work fine, is there anything I can insert into the registry to do the same task so I can just send all the staff a registry batch file?!

    I use the assoc command in a machine startup script, heres an example:

    assoc.wps=Word.Document.8

    Look on google how to use "assoc"

    If you type assoc at the command prompt it will list all associations.
