How can I manually create a file association for a TS RemoteApp program on an XP client PC?  I know how to create a file association by checking the box during the MSI creation, but this doesn’t always work.  This is why I want to do it manually.  I looked in the ftype and assoc lists, but didn’t see anything that looked like it was for a RemoteApp/RDP program.  I looked in the registry, but couldn’t find anything either, but I didn’t really know exactly where I should be looking.
Thanks,

when creating the msi/sequence, there is an option "for all users" maybe this is the problem and i rember you can update the app to include the "all user" file association.

i would not recommend to change it on the client (and i don't know how to do it)

There are two pages to specify settings when creating MSI's with the RemoteApp Wizard.  I don't see that setting on either page.  I also don't see the harm with manually creating a file association.  Microsoft provides instructions for doing this.  I just can't figure out how it is done for a RemoteApp.

Never had this problem. This TechNet thread states it can happen, if the same app is installed again on the local ciomnputer AFTER the remote app was installed:
