Windows 7: Set WMP 12 64-bit as default player

12 Sep 2009   #11


No Shark stuff here. No codecs added of any kind.

IrfanView and plugins, FastPictureViewer, SlySoft Suite are my closest candidates.

I had actually read on that before I last posted, but didn't think it was worth mentioning. Don't know if I'll got that route, but thanks for letting us know you got it to work.

Configuring the Shark 007s x64 Settings Application and setting the default player to x64 works for me.
