Mixcraft cannot be chosen for default .mid files

Postby liven4all » Mon Oct 29, 2018 10:32 am

I recently installed mixcraft 8(registered) on my b/u PC. It is not as powerful as my primary.
The PPC is win7
BU is win10

I tried to change properties so that when under file manager I select a mid file it will open mixcraft. This is not happening. I can change it to cakewalk, no problem.
I prefer to use MC and to click on a songlist.

Any ideas as to why my win10 pc will not allow me to default *.mid files to MC?

Hi,

I'm seeing the same thing here. That's really strange. I also tried it for .flac files and that didn't work either. I tried it with the "Choose default apps by file type" option in Windows Settings, and I also tried it by right-clicking on a file, selecting "Open With..." and then checking the box to always open with that app.

I have Windows 1803 - is that what you have? (Windows Settings > System > About)

There seems to be a recent issue where some file associations aren't remembered by Windows 10. I've seen some articles about it and if I remember correctly this was a bug that somehow found its way into Windows through a recent security patch. So this may not specifically be a Mixcraft thing.

Thanks!

And coincidentally, my boss just sent me a Forbes article on this very issue:
