    I have XP Pro w/MS Media Player 11.0. Works fine with MPG files and some others, but WMV files open a text box with control characters.

    Isn't there a place in Control Panel where I can set which programs run which media files?

    Thank you,

    Welcome,

    Right click on the WMV file and choose Properties then click Change button and choose what program you want to use to Open these files.

    If you open Windows Media Player, then go to Tools, then Options and select File Types you can choose which ones should open with WMP.
