One of my users has somehow changes the default file association for PDF files.  I cannot seem to find a way to change it back to Acrobat.  The file type buttons are greyed out, and I cannot seem to get into the settings to change it for that user.  All other users are correct, and reference Acrobat.

How can I cange the file type for this one user for his citrix sessions?

I presume that this has been changed on the server (can't change file associations)

You can do this via command prompt:

First you need to find out the "internal file type name" for acrobat.


cmd
ftype | more

You need to look for the string for "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 6.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe" "%1"

Mine was - AcroExch.Document="C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 6.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe" "%1"

But it could vary according to acrobat reader version.



Next you set the file association like this

cmd
assoc .pdf=AcroExch.Document
(changing the AcroExch.Document to your result from ftype)

This should then work
