Title: How To Make WACUP Default?
Post by: MourningStar on March 05, 2019, 07:32:16 PM
I'm doing something wrong. I select a xxxx.flac file. I go to properties and change the 'opens with' and navigate to the WACUP directory and choose  the exe.. However, it fires up standard Winamp. (????)

You're not doing anything wrong but because it's a preview build & is designed to avoid integrating with the OS so builds can be tried out side-by-side then such things are completely expected to happen. Other than manually going in & editing the registry (which is not a solution), there's little else to do for the moment until WACUP has the mechanisms in place to correctly handle such things on its own.

I have renamed the exe in the WACUP program directory from winamp.exe to WACUP.exe and invoked a fresh association. It now behaves as I desire. thx

I'm able to associate certain music files with WACUP in Windows 10 by using the Windows 10 file association utility to  select the "WACUP (Winamp Community Update Project) Loader" when I double-click on these music files in Windows Explorer.

This lets me associate some music file extensions with WACUP and others with Winamp.
