I know how to get TS to allow me to change the file type associations in Terminal Services with the "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer - NoFileAssociate option. But my problem is when I change the assocation it only applies to the logged in user. I have tried  assoc .jpg=mspaint cmd line option but it doesn't seem to change the associations. Is there a way that I can make all users have a certain file association with out logging on as each user and making the change. I thought about creating a custom .adm for group policy that would do this but would I have to keep the NoFileAssociation option disabled so that when they logged in it would change the association? I don't think this would because even with the option enabled it only applies to admin's and power users. Please help this sucks!
