Is this even possible - File Association

Is this even possible to do?
Can the file association be mapped to a remote client's program?
For example:
Lets say you have a pdf on the remote computer and you have adobe acrobat on the client
Is there a way in the registry on the remote or using some other form of RDP to force the program to use the local machine to open that type file?
I know you can map drives and save the remote file to the local machine but I would rather not have to do that.

I figured there would be some way to change the file association for when its connected remotely.  Thanks!

Sorry. I believe file associations do not work with remote execution.  :-(

I am not aware of any possible way of doing so.  Usualy you can install a viewer on the target machine but nothing like targeting a remote extension of anykind
