Create an association in the Folder Options Control Panel? Or didn't you?
Other things to try:
- See if your version of WMP has something like Tools>Options to specify what file types should be associated with it. Then check .wmv
- Find a .wmv file on your hard disk (any will do, for example one you saved) the right click>open with ..., browse to WMP, check the "always use this program to open this type of file"-checkbox and OK.
One of these methods might help.
I have an e-mail friend that sends me some hilarious stuff but here lately everything with a .wmv file it won't open i can save to a temp folder and it will open then. Is this just in my outlook express it pops up with this message "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folder Options Control Panel.". I clicked ok all i get is an empty folder in temporary files folder. I'd appreciate any help my cable people are worse than I am an they say consult Microsoft when you go there first thing they want is money.
