wav files as Win. Media Player files.

 

After rearranging my PC the wav files show up as a Windows Media Player file in the POI folder. Does anybody know how that can be changed?

Right click

You can right click on the file and go to "properties." Look for "opens with" line, and click on the "change" button. From there, you can select a program you want to use to open the file.

Yes I know but what program do I chose to make it work for a custom POI?

you're missing the point

The file is still a wav file. You likely have file extensions hidden for known file types (always a bad setting but the Microsoft default) and you are paying too much attention to what program is claiming ownership of the file. It doesn't matter what program "owns" the file, this only affects what program it gets passed to if you click on it. You can still play it with other programs that play wav files, and you can use it as data for POI loader.

If you want to change the program that "owns" the file extension, as already stated you can do that with the "open with" option (which in some Microsoft OS's requires holding the shift key when you right click on the program) and checking the box to use the new application for all files of that type. As to what program to use, it depends on what you most want to do with wav files. If you do lots of editing then Audacity is a great free audio file editor and it can certainly be associated with wav files. While I use audacity, I don't want it to come up every time that I click on a wav file, I usually just want to hear the file. So I associate wav files with Winamp or some other player application on my systems.

Doesn't matter

As Frovingslosh mentioned, it doesn't matter. POI loader will take the file and convert it, regardless of which program is associated with it.

I have both .wav and .mp3 associated with WMP, which is what I use if I want to test the speech.

Thanks for your replies. I

Thanks for your replies. I didn't think this would work when I saw the WMP file. After I read your replies I tried it and it does work. Great.
Thanks again.
