a group of our staff and students wish to use fireworks for some reason - i despise it but oh well.
my issue is that while we have a package to roll the crapware out with, which works fine, it then proceeds to take over the entire world... or at least file associations on the machine, opening JPG's with itself instead of simple previewer, which is a pain and something i want it to stop doing.
how do i go about doing this, either making a transform, something in a gpo, something rolled out to the machine or a last resort, a login script *shudder*
i've seen stuff about assoc but i'm not sure if commands like these will work for our locked down student/staff accounts?
any ideas welcome :):)
Will that work as part of a login script though? None of our users have access to any aspect of registry other than their own hives.
If you use the command to run silently, yes it should work. Try it and see.
Wicked. I will give it a shot in about half an hour after the brats (what little amount of them there is) have disappeared. They're being shoo'd off at 2.30 sharp today! Normal finishing time... just being told to sod off instead of hanging around :lol:

This is quite good; it means that user X can use Fireworks to open JPG etc but user Y can use Paint and so on.
