Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
When I open my Control Panel, and click on the folder option icon, it will not open, so how do I create a program associated with it, if it will not open? I need to open an attachment that came with an email that was sent to me, and it gives me this reason why it will not open.
Everytime I tried to play a CD, DVD or even inserted a USB these message keeps appearing "windows media player cannot play the file because the required video codec is not installed".
Video codecs are files that decode the video. VLC is a small free video/audio player which has most of the codecs you need built in.
A brief overview of VLC
Somebody send an email with a web link included. I click on the "blue" text and instead of going to the website, I get the "THis file does not have a program associated with it". I go to Control Panel, Default Programs, and I don't know which programs goes with what. HELP!
To post a comment on "This file does not have a program associated with it - what does this mean and what do I do?", please return
to that article's main page.
