Currently i have MS office and open office.org installed on our terminal Server. When users log on and try to open files with the extention CSV it by default opens MS word. I don't want this to happen, i need EVERY user that logs on to the TS to by default open- open office.org for any CSV files. I've read http://support.microsoft.com/kb/257592 which is pretty clear cut but still not solving my issue. Maybe i'm doing this incorrectly but could someone maybe give me some insight on how to change the global file association in regedit? thanks kt

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I guess the problem may be related to the regkey itself indeed if you read the MS Article talks about “HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Classes” that is relevant for the logged on user (In this case you); you should change the key for all users’ registry hives. (The Sxxxxx ones under HKEY_USERS)
