I am trying to set some of the extensions (file types) that we deliver
to be designated as "NoOpen" during installation.

This is because we do not want the user to double-click on these files
and open them with an associated program.

But we do not want to hide them because of the workflow of some
commands of our products; these files need to be visible.

The Verb Table requires a verb for the command.
Is there a keyword or a flag for "None" or "Not Applicable" in the
Verb column?

I do not think that I should use the Extension table (Associated file
extension) to register the file extension with "nothing" or something
of the kind?

So what are the options offered by MSI to set a file type as NoOpen?

Any suggestions is welcomed.
Thanks in advance,
