Notes

Only administrators can run.

A terminal server uses file associations to determine which application to use to access files of various types. File types are registered using Windows Explorer.

Per-user file associations allow each user to have a different application associated with a specific file type.

If user-specific file associations are enabled, only removes the unused space from the user profile. If user-specific file associations are disabled, also removes the corresponding registry entries.


Examples

none.
