HKCR and underdog users

Recommended Posts

Hi there guys,

I've got a question related to the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT registry hive.

We created a secure XP client here and some users complained about the fact that they could not change the file associations i.e. in Photoshop.

Does anyone of you have an idea how I could enable a user to change the file associations without giving him control of HKCR?

I tried it like that,

runas /user:priviledged "RunDLL32.EXE shell32.dll,Options_RunDLL 0"

but that didn't work either. :}

Thanks for your help :thumbup

As far as I know the only way to change file associations IS via HKCL, thus you won't be able to do this without having a program, running as priviledged, which changes the values in HKCL. This could be a service for instance. But I don't know whether such a tool exist. ;)
