Software Deployment Question

Winzip 20 file association

04/19/2016 1491 views
Hi all, 

I try to deploy Winzip 20 to our Win8.1 and Win10 clients via HEAT (Netinstall).
I created a custom mst file (http://kb.winzip.com/kb/entry/11) - to this point, everything runs very smooth.

Now only zipx files are associated with the winzip app, not normal zip files?!
There is a special property within the mst file (OLD_ZIP_ASSOC), but that doesn´t work as well.
Furthermore I have tried to run a spy installation (within the HEAT application), this also doesn´t work.

Is there anything which I do not see?!

Thanks in advance and greetings from Germany

sorry for the late reply, I tried this option with "Best" and "Legacy".
But the file assignment for zip files still doesn´t work.
I switched off the UAC, I started the app with administrative rights - nothing works?!

Set the value of the DEFCOMPICK property to "Legacy"
