ClientApplications

ClientApplications specifies client programs to be set as default applications when the user elects to restore the computer manufacturer's settings through Default Programs.

Use these settings to configure Windows so that a user can later reinstate the original OEM configuration for these applications. Any program specified for any of these settings must be able to change default file associations. If a setting is missing or blank, the default program associated with that setting does not change when the user chooses to reinstate the original OEM configuration. For example, if a setting is not specified for JavaVM, the default virtual machine for Java is left unchanged.

This setting has no effect on Server Core installations of Windows Server 2008.
