i've been using windows xp since forever after reluctantly leaving win98 after memorizing "The Mother of All Windows 98 Books" by Woody Leonhard and Barry Simon
even so, there are some problems that simply baffle me like this one. search has not been productive. i tried to add an action, but wasn't successful. searched the registry, but didn't find anything useful.
how do i add an action to the audio options ? there isn't anything to be done in the 'autoplay' tab. i've installed some software by NCH, and also a player called 'potplayer', but these options are not available on autoplay. the only option available, is 'windows media player', even though i specifically did not install windows media player. simply amazing what xp can do. anyone got a suggestion ?

No guarrantee this will do what you want but open Windows Explorer and find a file you want to use with Potplayer and RIGHT click on it. Then click 'Open with . . '. this opens a box listing common applications to open the file of your choice. If Potplayer is listed then tick the button at the bottom left of the dialogue box 'Always use this application to open this type of file' then select Potplayer. If it doesn't show in the list there is a 'Browse for' button. Use that to find the Potplayer .EXE file, click on the .EXE file then the 'Always use' button then click, it's either, OK or Apply.


If this works for Potplayer it will also work for NCH.

I am going to be away until about the 22nd October. Time on-line will be reduced and my internet access may be limited. PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal !
