    Files not opening with correct app


    I have Media Player Classic (MPC-HC) as my default app for opening various video files (MP4, AVI, etc). But it no longer works. When I d-click such a file type in Windows File Explorer, it always opens with the Films & TV app.

    I've reset it in vain several times by using Open With and choosing 'Always Open...'.

    If I then use Open With again, the setting is no longer made, i.e. there is no checkmark in 'Always Open with...'.

    How do I get the correct d-click program association to stick please?

    Mail app will not open on 10041.


    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. Files not opening with correct app :)

    In this Windows 10 build 10041, the Mail, Calendar, and People apps may be broken due to a licensing issue with the Store Beta. To get these apps working again, you need to follow these steps:

    • Open powershell as administrator
    • Run the command Get-appxprovisionedpackage –online | where-object {$_.packagename –like “*windowscommunicationsapps*”} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage –online
    • Re-install Mail, People and Calendar from the Store (green tile)

    App to open .c6e0ec and .e8d549184 files

    Hi Hitkary,

    It seems that there is no default app set to open these kind of files. Can you still recall the type of app or program that opens this kind of file?

    For us to isolate this issue, we suggest assigning a default app or program to open it. Follow the steps below:

    • Open Settings and click System.
    • Click Default apps.
    • At the bottom, click Choose default apps by file type.
    • Scroll down and look for the .e8d549184 file.
    • Once found, click the + sign on the right and select the app you want to use.

    Once you've successfully set the default app, try opening the file again and let us know how it goes.

    Regards.
