TR5 file association broken in Windows after deploying RM8.2

TR5 file association broken in Windows after deploying RM8.2

Does anyone know of a way to automatically fix the file association between TR5 files & TRIM?

We've just deployed RM8 to our organisation.  However when users click on a TR5 file they're prompted to manually associate it with an application.  Until they do that TR5 icons are blank.

(We've deployed RM8.20 #7591 via SCCM to Windows 7 PC's.  TRIM is 32-bit.  Most of our PC's are as well)

Thanks

Re: TR5 file association broken in Windows after deploying RM8.2

We just rolled out RM8.3 and had the same issue.  Try this to associate with RM Desktop.  Use TRIM.exe if you want the full RM client.

 

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.tr5]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.tr5\OpenWithList]
 "MRUList"="a"
 "a"="TrimDesktop.exe"

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.tr5\OpenWithProgids]
 "TRIM5.Record.Reference"=hex(0):

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.tr5\UserChoice]
 "Progid"="Applications\\TrimDesktop.exe"
