I need to alter the file association (Registered file type) on my Windows 2000 Terminal Server, so that another product can be used to open the file extension (e.g. .pdf etc). The problem is that the Change button next to 'Opens with:' is greyed out on every association I look at.

How do you make changes to file associations on a Terminal Server?

1) Open REGEDIT.
2) Go to the following key:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
3) Create a DWORD value named:
NoFileAssociate
4) Set its content to 0.
5) Log-off and back on.
(Note: You must be an administrator in order to do this).
