ThinApp Setup Capture doesn’t capture file type associations

Together with my friend Sebastian Stein (@BERSFO) from we discovered a little problem with the ThinApp Setup Capture. When capturing an application, in our case we captures ACDSee, it may happen that the Setup Capture wizard doesn’t record the file type associations registered by the application.

You can easy fix this using the commandline tools assoc and ftype to reregister the file type associations during the capture process. For a detailed description see Sebastian’s article.
