Edit File Types/ Add switches and paraments to .exe in Vista


In WinXP, administrators had the ability to add command line switches to associated file type .exe.

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\WINWORD.EXE" /n /dde

I want to be able to add a few switches to an application set to run a default file type in Vista Business, but I have not been able to find any method of accomplishing this.

Best I could find on MS site is to create desktop shortcuts for the application with switches added.  Unforunately, my users will starting the application by clicking on the file type they need opened, so this is not a logical solution for me.

In case Im not clear (nothing new here :) )  I've attached a jpg of what I would expect to see in previous versions of Windoze.

Any help appreciated.

This did not resolve my particular issue, but fully answered my question.  It will be worth archiving since this functionality is not available in Windows Vista
