ManageTypes Registry Key setting: Unable to add or manage file type associations as a standard user RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    We run an SCCM integrated App-V infrastructure.

    Right now, we cannot configure the App Virt Client to allow a standard user (non-local admin) to modify file type associations.

    I set the following registry keys:

    HKLM>Software>Microsoft>Softgrid>4.5>client>Permissions>ManageTypes to a DWORD value of 1 as per this article:http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc843746.aspx

    I've even set the equivalent under HKLM>Software>Wow6432Node>Microsoft>  xx  to no avail.

    The option to add New associations is not present when these keys are set, for a standard user.

    Can anyone advise me on how this can be configured correctly? What have I missed?

  • After you set the reg did you restart the App-V service?

  • Hello,

    No need to be unfriendly when someone asks you to share information, you did not previously share.

  • What happens if you set the permissions via the App-V client console instead of the registry directly?

  • Hi Aaron, the permissions show up as set on the permissions tab (Manage File Type Associations is checked), however user still cannot add a file type association
