I'm trying to set a file association for restricted users on a network.

ftype ShockwaveFlash.ShockwaveFlash="C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" "%1"

But this won't open the file when they double click on it! It's waiting for a file name..

Is there anyway I can make the association work with the file that is clicked on?

I'm trying to put this in a batch file.

I would think that you'd need to use both ASSOC and FTYPE
ASSOC .swf=ShockwaveFlash.ShockwaveFlash

FTYPE ShockwaveFlash.ShockwaveFlash="iexplore.exe" "%1" %*
However, you'd also likely need to have the appropriate registry settings for the Shockwave Flash Object too.
