Windows 7: Duplicate WMP entries in "Open with" menu

02 Sep 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
Duplicate WMP entries in "Open with" menu

---------- ---------- Description ---------- ----------

I only found out about this today when I tried to use "Open with" to access Windows Media Player. I have two of these entries but both of them work. I remembered I had issues with the WMP icon pinned on the taskbar showing as a blank icon so I used Fix WMP and the problem was gone. Not sure if that caused the problem but now all I want is it gone.
---------- ---------- Others ---------- ----------

- I have the following codecs installed -
1. K-Lite Codec Pack Standard (Without Windows Media Player Classic)
2. Shark007’s Windows 7 Codec Package (Not configured)
3. K-Lite Codec Pack x64

Okay actually this is normal because I'm using 64 bit version of Windows 7 and W764 has 2 WMP. They are 32 bit and 64 bit. I clicked on 2 of them and compared them just last week.
