Hello,

On a Citrix server ( W2K with Citrix XP FR3), I had install MS Office + OOo 2.0.
I search to associate the extensions .xls, .doc, .ppt... for some users to OOo. The others continue to open automaticaly with MS Office.

I had read some posts, I search with the KB 257592... so I try to associate with the key of registry : [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Classes\...
But It's don't running...

Do you have any solutions please ?

Thanks.

Teddy,

Hi,

did you tried the simple way? Just right click the files with this extension
then choose open with. Select OpenOffice and set the checkbox
"Always use this..." and click OK. If this didn't work I guess MS
will rewrite the registry if MS Office starts up.

Cheers

Yes, I can do this ( also before I must change a key from the registry because I use a W2K server. In this case, it's work well).
But, I want to change the association into a script ! It's more easier for a lot of users.

Regards.
