Setting WAV file type assocation for Windows media player via DEM

Jump to solution

From a regular PC, if open a .WAV file on Windows 10, it will launch Windows Media Player, and the file automatically plays back.

If I look at task manager with the command line column showing, I see

If I launch the same from a non-persistent desktop, media player launches, but the file does not start playing.

In DEM, I have the following set for WAV extension type

This doesn't seem to work.  Are there any suggestions on how to set up a file type association or WAV file so it automatically launches, opens and plays a .WAV file when it is double clicked or opened for Outlook?

Adding "%1" to the argument field seemed to do the trick.  Windows media player opens and plays a WAV file when double clicked instead of just launching Windows Media Player.

Looks like my images weren't included

Opening a WAV file on a regular PC, task manager shows this in command line:

C:\program files (x86)\Windows Media Player\wmplayer.exe" /Play -Emedding

Launching on non-persistent desktop:

C:\program files (x86)\Windows Media Player\wmplayer.exe"

The flags for /Play -Emedding

I found this article from Microsoft, which doesn't show /Play as an option
