Hello xTL,

You can use this tutorial for them as well. Just substitute .mp3 for the other file extensions in either step 3 or 4 based on what you have as the file extension's default program.

In the right pane of UserChoice, what do you have as the data for Progid (step 4B)? This is were you will need to go to (steps 5 to 8) to change the icon path at.
