Hello Helpers,
I receive a message when trying to open .wmv attachments. I receive an error that says no file extension is associated and Windows Media Player does not automatically open the file. I have gone to my folder options tab and the association is there. What am I doing wrong? I operate in Windows Professional.

Have you selected WMF...as the default to open all .wmv files...by right-clicking on any .wmv file and choosing WMF as the default option?
