    Techsoft 3D Design - File Association

    Afternoon,

    Our installation of Techsoft 2D design somehow hasn't managed to associate the file type in the registry. Can anyone export the correct registry key for the association so I can add it to a GPO?

    Otherwise I'll sit down and Google it later tonight (teaching all day).

    Cheers and appreciated,

    Gareth

    Gareth, I don't know what the extensions or exe files are as I don't have it installed on my workstation, however, the format for it is as below which you should be able just substitute the relevant entries ...

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.doc]
    "Application"="winword.exe"

    Ok, just had a quick look on one of our DT stations and so the reg frag should be

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.dtd]
    "Application"="2ddes32.exe"

    This is what we use...

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\DesignToolsDrawingFile]
    @="Design Tools Drawing File"
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\DesignToolsDrawingFile\DefaultIcon]
    @="C:\\Program Files\\TechSoft Design Tools\\2D Design V2\\2ddes32.exe,0"
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\DesignToolsDrawingFile\shell]
    @="open"
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\DesignToolsDrawingFile\shell\open]
    @="&Open"
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\DesignToolsDrawingFile\shell\open\command]
    @="\"C:\\Program Files\\TechSoft Design Tools\\2D Design V2\\2ddes32.exe\" \"%1\""
