Windows 7: 'Play All' is using WMP if more than 15 files in folder

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bits
'Play All' is using WMP if more than 15 files in folder


I'm using Media Player Classic as default audio player but I'm facing a problem with Windows Explorer button 'Play All'.

Actually, if one folder contains less than 16 mp3 files, 'Play All' button will launch Media Player Classic as expected. But if the folder contains 16 mp3 files or more, 'Play All' button will launch Windows Media Player.

I've checked: MPC is defined as the default audio application. I don't know why WMP is started when the number of files is above 15.

Can one help?
