Citrix – Changing the Default Program – File Association Script


When installing Office on our Citrix farm in support of our Great Plains deployment, it changed the XML file association rendering our Billing invoice XML presentation process useless. Our Back Office staff notified us that all of their XML-based invoices were opening in Notepad.

Here’s the script we used to correct the default association program:


Assoc .xml=xmlfile

Ftype xmlfile=”C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE” –nohome


Good luck,
