File association for WAV files

(imported topic written by emock91)

On any given computer a user will have a file association for the wav extension

that determines what application runs when they double click on the file.

Can Bigfix provide the name of that application ?

Thanks !!!

Try this:

q: name of application of key “HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT.wav” of registry
A: wmplayer.exe


q: application of key “HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT.wav” of registry
A: “wmplayer.exe” “12.0.7600.16415” “Windows Media Player” “12.0.7600.16415 (win7_gdr.090828-1615)” “Microsoft Corporation”

Hi Ben , we wrote a batch file to change the file association for a .WAV to open with sndrec32.exe ( windows sound recorder )

Can you help me with what the relevance would be for targeting machines that have other than sndrec32.exe as the file association for .WAV files . Thanks

Run this on a machine that has sndrec32.exe

name of application of key “HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT.wav” of registry

Plugin the answer that you get on your machine into this relevance:

name of application of key “HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT.wav” of registry is not “put your result here”

Of course, that is an example, you need to replace the “put your result here” with the result of the first query.
