    The file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action


    Hi there,
    I'm having an error (The file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. create an association in the set Associations controll panel) only when i try to play a DVD or a CD though, the autostart menu doesn't appear when i insert the disk and if I double click on the cd or dvd the error appears. I tried Merging the .exe file but didn't fix anything
    Any ideas please?

    Hi ndrepebx, go to start menu > settings > control panel > autoplay.... and set your preferences.

    to make a program open a file by default go here:
    start menu > settings > control panel > default programs > "Set Default Programs" OR "Set a file type or protocol with a program" ....depending on which you need.

    hope that helps
