We current have Windows server 2003 and Citrix Metaframe presentation server 4.1 running terminal services and the users conecting on thin clients.

I'm trying to make it possible for users to add there own file type assosiations within  folder options.  At the moment users can view the file types but can't add new ones as the New button is greyed out. I've check through our Group Policies but I can't find anything to relate to this.

And now I'm stuck on what to do next ??? Any help would be much appreciated.

They may need to be power users or administrators to be able to do that on terminal services. You may have to dig for a security policy that enables it for regular users.

just ended up giving the user accounts admin rights, making the changes for them and taking away the admin rights. Thank god I didn't have to do it for too many people. Bit of a sledgehammer to crack the nut fix, but heyho it worked and the users are happy.
