Windows 7: Set your default programs list - VLC

11 Sep 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Set your default programs list - VLC

Anybody knows why I dont have VLC in that list? I've reinstalled a couple of times and it still doesn't show up. I'm not asking this not because I dont know how to set a file association with VLC but just out of curiosity. It should be there right? It was there in my Vista very much. Im on 7 RTM now.

Screenshot is attached.

In this post on my blog I describe how to add VLC Media Player to the list of Default Programs, and I supply a downloadable registry-fix for doing this quickly and easily:

Adding VLC to the list of Default Programs

Do this at your own responsibility, though. And BTW, VLC must be installed in the default location of "C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe" for my fix to work.

Though a little late for threadstarter, I hope that my fix can be of help to someone out there

BTW, if you want to add other programs to the Default Programs list, please have a look here for hints:
