The File Type Associations node is one level below the Application Virtualization node in the Scope pane of the Application Virtualization Client Management Console. When you select this node, the Results pane displays a list of file type associations.

Right-click the File Type Associations node to display a pop-up menu that contains the following elements.

New Association

This menu item displays the New Association Wizard. This wizard consists of two pages:
  1. Enter a new or existing file name extension, and associate the extension with a file type:

    • Extension—Enter a new or existing file name extension. This field is blank by default.

    • Create a new file type with this description—Select this radio button to enter a new file type description in the active field. This button is selected by default, and the active field is blank.

    • Apply this file type to all users—Select this check box when you want this association to be global for all users. By default, this box is not selected.

    • Link this extension with an existing file type—Select this radio button to associate the extension with an existing file type. Choose a file type from the drop-down list. When you choose this option, Next is changed to Finish.

  2. Select the application that will open files with the specified extension:

    • Open files with the selected application—Select this radio button to open the file with an existing application. Choose an application from the drop-down list of available applications.

    • Open file with the application described in this OSD file—Select this radio button to specify an Open Software Descriptor (OSD) file that determines the application used to open the file. Browse to select an existing location, or enter a path or HTTP-formatted URL in this field.
