File association in App-V 4.6 SP1

The App-DNA report of an application gives below with an Amber compatibility for App-V.

To make FTAs global, you can manually create the FTA within the App-V Client Management Console and specify to \"Apply to all users\", which would store the FTA information in HKLM. Another option is to edit the OSD file by adding '/global' to the syntax in the FTA section of the OSD; i.e. sftmime add type:tst /app \"TEST Application\" /global. The global parameter will specify the FTA to be written to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Classes\\ (Everyone). To add multiple FTAs you will need to create a link to the application. To do this create the first FTA; i.e. sftmime ADD TYPE:LOC /APP \"MyApp 1\" /DESCRIPTION POC-FILE. You will then need to link additional FTAs to the same application using the syntax (Softgrid.[type].File); i.e. sftime ADD TYPE:LIN /PROGID SoftGrid.LOC.File.

 

I tried searching a lot and it seems that this was the thing till App-V 4.5 and it is no more there in App-V 4.6 SP1. Not sure though but after reading a lot of posts and forums I could find only this. Could anyone please help me by telling how to resolve this issue in App-V 4.6 SP1.

The File association is for only current user and I want it to be per machine.

Thanks.

Just starting to play with appv, but from a bit that I have read, can't you install the app per machine during sequencing, and thus shortcuts are captured as per machine?

I read from one blog that he litterally re-packages the app with customizations and THEN sequences...  Would this work for you?

I just sequenced it any how and with RTSP protocol and deployed. It is working fine for File Association for all users. So I think 4.6 SP1 does not require this remediation it is already there.
