Need to know the OS you are trying to do this for.

Is this for Windows, Mac or both?

In Windows you can go about this two ways:
1. Creating a defaultapplications.xml file that loads at user login
2. Use ASSOC and FTYPE commands (see https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windows/en-US/06d35f90-56cb-4dec-b326-bd471d06acee/change-default-program-for-file-command-line-or-registry?forum=w7itprogeneral)
