        Hi mrahe_74,

         

        Would you mind starting a new topic for this, rather than piggybacking on the 9.10 announcement, and describe what exactly you have configured in DEM? Also, what "article" do you refer to in "as described in the article."?

          Hi mrahe_74, perhaps this topic from pim helps (GPO Policy!):

            Has this been resolved Or still happening? Have you started a new thread for this issue?

              Hi DEMdev

               

              I'm trying to follow your steps but I get stuck here: Extract the Registry\Default Applications.xml file from the test user's profile archive.

               

              I don't see an XML file here, only a "Flex Profiles" registry key. How am I supposed to find this .xml file?

               

              Thank you,

              Steve

                Hi sjwood,

                 

                Was that profile archive exported based on a config file that is using the Default applications template from DEM 9.10 or later?

                  Hello DEMdev,

                  Good added functionality !

                   

                  Alas, it does not work for me. I have an error message, which I use "Fully Enforced Settings" or "Files and Folders", when creating the "Registry" folder.

                   

                  Here is my "Default Applications.xml" file :

                  <defaultApps>

                   

                  I have an error message when the file wants to run :

                  I happened to not have this error message, but the file associations did not work :

                  When I go to the Windows control panel, then in "define the program associations", I see that the parameters do not apply:

                  Thanks for your help.

                    Hi GestInfra,

                     

                    Can you share that FlexRepository\Settings\File\test.zip file? It's probably related to the character encoding, but that's easier to troubleshoot if I can play with that file .

                      Hi DEMdev

                       

                      As you indicate in another message, I modified with Notepad ++ the file "Default Applications.xml". This file was generated by DEM with a test user.

                       

                      You will find attached the requested file.

                        Merci, GestInfra!

                         

                        I was so sure that this was an encoding issue that I completely overlooked the missing '/' at the end of the XML fragment you included in your original post .

                         

                        Can you try after changing that <defaultApps> on line 17 to </defaultApps>?

                          Error on my part, the "/" was missing, I hadn't noticed. Sorry DEMdev

                           

                          On Google Chrome, most protocols work, except HTTP and HTTPS, as you can see in the screenshot :

                            No problem, GestInfra, I'd missed that too, the first time around. I'll see if I can get a better error message from MSXML, as "Error 0x00000001 loading XML document" was not particularly helpful...

                             

                            As for HTTP/HTTPS, can you try adding the <fileExts> element with the .htm(l) FTAs, as shown in my original post?

                              The error message I had from my original message disappeared when the tag was correctly filled.

                               

                              I already use "File Type Associations", with the .htm, and many other file extensions for Google Chrome. Adding "<fileExts>" and ".htm" doesn't duplicate what I did ? And what does that change since "HTTP" and HTTPS "is already written ?

                              My goal is to reduce the "Default Applications.xml" file as much as possible in order to use "File Type Associations" as much as possible.

                               

                              Like other interlocutors, I would have preferred everything to be in the same interface.

                                Hi GestInfra,

                                I already use "File Type Associations", with the .htm, and many other file extensions for Google Chrome. Adding "<fileExts>" and ".htm" doesn't duplicate what I did ? And what does that change since "HTTP" and HTTPS "is already written ?

                                Probably that will indeed override those FTA(s), but I'm wondering whether it will work better. As for the second part: to be honest, I do not know. Just suggesting to give it a try to see whether it helps.

                                  I gave it a try, but HTTP and HTTPS still doesn't work.

                                  On your side, it works without problem?

                                   

                                  With Windows file associations, this works without problems. When DEM will push "Default Applications.xml", and the Windows file association is already done its work, HTTP and HTTPS become without associated program.

                                   

                                  Suddenly, this window appears to choose the browser :

                                   

                                  I tried with a test profile, where the change would have been made manually, on reboot, the problem returns.

                                   

                                  Since there are no solutions for now, I will keep my Windows file association for HTTP and HTTPS.
