A user has a report shortcut on his desktop that opens a program other than the one he wants.
The is no access priviledges to change the file assocition for that extension for his term session since he is not admin.
The term server itself has the correct file associations.

How do I give him access to change this in his session without giving him admin rights?

    Fix the shortcut.

    You can call the program of choice in the shortcut and pass the file to it.

    If you post the Properties of the shortcut (the path) and the path to the app he wants to open it with I can give you the line to use in the shortcut.
