Open an elevated Command Prompt and Enter:

ASSOC .mkv=JetAudio
FTYPE JetAudio=JetAudio.exe %1 %*

This is assuming that the .EXE is JetAudio.exe if not replace it with the real .EXE

Strange. Are you sure the "Allays use the selected program to use this kind of file" is selected?

If the file have another program it tries to open with there is one more reason. It could be the other software is locking in the file association to itself. If that is you would need to go into that program and deselect .MKV from the list.
