If I use properties(RM on file -> properties -> change) and try to change it defaults to WMP.
mp3 doesn't show up in GOM's file associates either. I'm not sure why it is not allowing me to make the association. I didn't know there was any "validation" logic behind associations and I could associate anything with anything I wanted?
While I imagine I could hack the registry I'm looking for the reason why it isn't working.
1. Do you have Open With in your right click context menu ?
If no, please use this tutorial to add : Open With Context Menu Item Open With Context Menu Item - Add or Remove
2. Right click at one of the MP3 files > select Open With > do you see GOM among the list to choose as Default program to open MP3 ?
If no, please use this tutorial : Open with - Add Program Open with - Add Program
Use Option Two : it is to add GOM exe into the list so that you can select GOM as your default program to open MP3s.
3. Once you have the above 2 .....
Right click at one of the MP3 files > Open With > select GOM ( if it is not seen, click Choose Default Program, if still not see GOM, click Other Programs ) > put a check mark at " Always use the selected program to open this kind of file " > OK when done.
GOM is now the default program for all MP3s.
