You can't reg. file associations via cmd line on a silent install as far as i can tell due to the fact that custom action "SetFileAssociations" is not a advertised public property. You can directly edit the msi, or use a transform (.mst) to work around this. Get Wise studio or InstallShield Tuner.....the eval. versions will build them for you easily and you will be able to maintain vendor support since the msi packages will not be modified. Through an mst, you will also be able to specify what you would like installed (i don't like the Camera plugs or the internet printing services) and also input your personal info as well (name, company, serial number. etc)
You can also capture the changes in the registry and just do a silent reg import.
If anyone cares....the msi uses SetFileAssociations to make a call to ShellIntMgr.dl (v.5x) or ShellIntMgr20.dll (v.6x)l. I haven't looked into the call switches for these dll's, but it could offer a workaround.
