Windows 7: Open with - Add Program

12 May 2015   #10

Windows 7 x64

Yes, that's how it should work. However that doesn't seem to work for VirtualDub 64bit. I can make VirtualDub the default program for AVI files but I can never add it to the Open With context menu or the dialog box that appears when choosing "Choose default program".

So I can't seemingly have Media Player Classic as the default program with a right-click menu option to open in Virtual Dub.

Seems like an issue with VirtualDub. You might also contact the developers to see if they know of a solution, or come up with one.

Is VirtualDub listed in Default Programs? If not, then it's definitely an issue with the program not being fully compatible.

I'd be curious if all 64bit programs are simply excluded from the list. I can make it the default program for AVI files but I can't make it appear in the right-click context menu or the "Choose default program..." prompt. I guess I'll either post on the technet forums and see if someone there knows what's up, as well as contact the VirtualDub developer.

It does not appear in Default Programs either.

Edit: Well, thanks for trying.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

I use Windows 10 and would like to once Explorer.exe allows me to choose the program that I want to open the .iso files.
I would like added "Open with" "VLC media player" for the .iso file in addition to programs that are already in the list.

64-bit Windows 10 Pro

Hello MrSeven,

The program must support opening .iso files to be able to be added to "Open with".
