Hello --

I have a bunch of transcriptionists who use a custom third-party application
to listen to .WAV voice files. The thing I am trying to avoid doing is
logging onto all their workstations AS EACH user (since they float around and
do not have a dedicated workstation) and MANUALLY changing the file
association for .WAV files.

Is there a registry tweak or a domain-based script I can run through GP to
force a file association to change to a customer executable no matter which
transcriptionist logs in?

Nice thought, but that only changes it for local workstation users, not
DOMAIN users. If it were only that easy...
