Below is my doubt..

1. When i am having MS OFFICE 07 both in local and virtual ,Did it open with virtually installed MSoffice or Local ly installed , How the system prioritize...

2. When i m having MS office 03 in local and 07 in virtual, how the .doc will open? using local or virtual ( If i removed FTA of virtual while deploy it open with local only, if suppose i m nt doing that, what it ll do)

3. Each and everytime apps downloading from server will it do any FTA modification in local machine.

4.Basically how the interaction is happening to open the apps in virtual when i m double clicking .doc which is in my desktop.

As far as I know, answering this question is as easy as looking at the FTA keys in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT and seeing if it points to a straightforward exe or to an SFTLAUNCH command. Another place where this is recorded is in the registry keys under


Keeping in mind that HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT is a combination of HKCU\SOFTWARE\Classes and HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes these would be the 2 places where the file association keys could live. HKCU settings taking priority over HKLM in this case. Without doing actual testing I would think the last application type to be installed would take the association. Another aspect of this would be the possible impact of roaming profiles on the HKCU part of these keys, if they are set to be roaming.

just my 2c ofc.
