devmgmt.msc (Device Management): This file does not have a program associated error with user account RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    When trying to open Device Manager with a user account (Control Panel - System / My Computer - Properties) the following error turns up.

     

     "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Set Associations control panel." 

     

    The above error shows up only when trying to open Device Manager through Control Panel - System / My Computer - Properties.

     

    This works correctly with Administrator account and when trying to open from control Panel-Device manager (for User Account shows user Program is blocked by Group Policy).

     

    Checked with file association (works fine with Administrator user anyway) and also registry. All other shortcuts for user account (Remote Settings, System Protection etc) shows correct message box that user Program is blocked by Group Policy.
