How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Stop CMTrace from asking us if we want to use it as the default viewer for log files in WinPE

Please add the following registry keys to WinPE whenever a Boot Image is created/updated to prevent it from asking every time if we want to use CMTrace as the default viewer for log files:

Reg add HKU\Software\Classes\.lo_ /ve /d Log.File /f

Reg add HKU\Software\Classes\.log /ve /d Log.File /f

Reg add HKU\Software\Classes\Log.File\shell\open\command /ve /d "\"x:\sms\bin\i386\CMTrace.exe\" \"%%1\"" /f

    One question I’ve been asked a few times is ‘can I take the copy of CMTrace from the Tech Preview build and use it with my version of SCCM?’ – answer is Yes.

        This would be so nice to have by default, especially as a consultant working on many new customer environments.
