Microsoft, Terminal Server, 2003, change file association

We have a Windiws 2003 server riunning as TS. Our users often view scanned invoices from within their sessions. I would like to change the association for .tif files once for all users. Anyone who knows how to do it? I have tried changing it when logged in as administrator in a RDP-session but it does not spread to all users.

You can use the FTYPE and ASSOC commands to associate .tif files globally on your server.
Open command prompt and follow the following:
Step 1: ASSOC .TIF=TIFEditor
Step 2: FTYPE TIFEditor="C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\MODI\11.0\MSPVIEW.EXE"  "%1"
The end. This should associate the .tif extension globally on your terminal server with Microsoft Office Document Imaging. You can change the path to in step 2 to a program of your choice. e.g If your TIF reader is located at C:\TIFReader\TIFR.EXE you can run:
FTYPE TIFEditor="C:\TIFReader\TIFR.EXE"  "%1"

Thanks!
It didnt help me right away but it put me on the right track. The .tif extension was associated with image wiever so I just reset the file association back to default from the GUI witihin windows explorer and then it worked like a charm.
