Hello there. I wonder if any of you guys might be able to help me with a slight issue I'm having in Windows 7 regarding opening files with a different program.
I want to open video files in mediaplayerclassic as opposed to Windows Media Player. When I first installed the OS, I just right clicked the files I wanted to open, such as .avi and .wmv, and changed the default to MPC which worked a treat.
For some reason, now when I double click a file, Windows asks me what I want to use to open the file and MPC is not in the list of options. Even when I navigate to either the shortcut or the .exe file itself and select that to open it, the file does not open in MPC and the icon does not appear in the 'choose default programme' dialogue box. It's very strange!
If I open MPC and then drag a video file into it there is no problem, but it does not want to do it by default!
Any suggestions? Thanks for reading.
