Profiles

Guest

Running Windows XP SP2 - moved profiles on computer because of domain
migration. User used WordPerfect 11 and saved files with different file
extensions or no extensions so WordPerfect can not open them because the file
type association is gone. The only way around the issue is the make the user
a local administrator of the box. I don't want to do that for obvious
reasons. I need to implement a GPO for restricted group so the local admin
has rights to the machine so once that is implemeted the user is no longer is
the admin of the local workstation. Any suggestions?

Why don't you just create the required associations yourself?

The user could, of course, open the files from within Word
Perfect instead of opening them from an Explorer-type
environment.

Because there are thousands of documents like that so it would take forever
to make the required association.

If you have ten thousand WP documents with a .xyz extension
then you need to create just one single association that launches
WP for all .xyz files.

no kidding - what do think I've been doing nothing. I've been trying to fix
the problem for the last couple of days. I tried the power user group no
luck. I have full control to the directory of that user and to the
windows\temp directory that I found on Corel's website.

If it were that easy I would of done it already and never posted the
question. If you read my post it states with different file extensions or no
file extensions. So, I would have to create multiple file extensions for
thousands of documents which would take forever.
