First of all - Thanks to all who have posted and shared their successes in packaging.

About a year ago there was a thread going around which included a question regarding packaging File and MIME Association changes for Quicktime. There were a number of suggestions but no one was able to state outright "this is what I did and it worked", merely well intentioned theories / suggestions. That question may have gotten lost amongst other questions in the thread.

I have all of my issues with Quicktime resolved except for that one. Thought I'd bring this up in it's own thread hoping that an answer is out there.

An example of what I'd like to do is make Quicktime the default player for AVI files, and of course - redistribute that setting. The default MSI doesn't appear to do this.

I've tried too many things to mention. Most recently I've attempted to capture changes (with Wise) while editing preferences in Quicktime as well as File Associations within Explorer. I've applied them on top of an install of Quicktime - without any luck.

If any of you have run into this specific issue AND successfully implemented a solution, I'd love to hear about it.
