.pl file associations for multiple users in Windows 7

Posted by xtr33me on 2010-04-14 07:33

I recently signed onto a Windows 7 computer and installed the 32 bit ActionPerl msi on our domain. Now when I sign in and goto the commnad prompt, I can run .pl files without the full path and it knows to associate the .pl file with the perl executable. However when one of our other users logs in, he is unable to run the perl scripts without using the full path and the preceding perl call. It seems that the file associations for pl worked fine for myself, but I need these to be associated for a few other users. I wanted to know how I can go about doing this. I checked their environment variables and the correct paths are in the PATH variable, but still no luck. IF you can provide me with any info, that would be great. Thanks for your time!
