    A friend has sent me an e-mail in WMV format. When I try to open the file I get the following message - 'This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the folder options control panel'. Now, I'm not even sure what this message means far less solving the problem. Can anyone help ?

    It's a video file. Strange that is has no association, but try playing it with Windows Media Player or any other similar media players.

    Sorry, silly me. I got it sorted. I was just doing it wrong.
