Additional Deployment Options for File Assocations

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I love the way you can create an MSI install package (using the /CREATEMSI switch) and also specify additional property switches thus allowing an easy deployment of Paint.NET over a network using Active Directory. When I do this I also specify JPGPNGBMPEDITOR=1 and TGAEDITOR=1 to get the Windows file assocations sorted out but my organisation tends to also work with other image formats [supported by Paint.NET) as well.

Is there any chance of adding additional switches to the install to also register file types such as TIFF and GIF? I'm currently attempting to generate a transform file to add these when I deploy but it would be great if they were incorporated as switches in the actual setup files already (like TIFFEDITOR=1).

I've had a look through the FAQ's and searched the forum and couldn't find any other info regarding this so apologies if this has been covered before.

Many thanks indeed,

I'm sorry, but you asked a question that only five or six people on this forum can answer. :-) Hopefully someone can pick that up soon.

And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.

The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
