A Forum reader asked the following question:
"When users open attachments such as Excel files, they don't open correctly. The option is set to view in a new window. If I set it to Open Attachment, then it opens in Excel, and the user can see everything correctly.
If I go to ConsoleOne > GroupWise snapin > Environment, there are no default actions and nowhere to change that option that i am looking for. If I go to Tools > Options > Environment >Default actions, that's where I can change it on the user side. Is there a way to change it on the server so I don't have to do it at every client?"
And here's the answer from Joseph Marton ...
Just push out the following registry key using ZEN, a login script, etc.:
HKCU\Software\Novell\GroupWise\Client\Setup DWORD: File Attach DoubleClick Value: 1
To disable the warning if the attachment is greater than a certain size, use this:
HKCU\Software\Novell\GroupWise\Client\Setup DWORD: .AttachmentPromptSize Value: 0xFFFFFFFF
To push this out with a login script,
1. Configure the keys on one machine.
2. Export the key to a .reg file.
3. In the login script call regedit and import the .reg file.
Or, you could get real fancy and just call a batch file in the login script; then in the batch file, throw in some logic to determine whether you need to import the key.
