maybe it shouldn't be allowed to be unchecked but then that goes against the purpose of allowing people the control they want for such things. i have made a note to look into it as time allows to make sure there isn't a bug in the handling or if something can be done but from what i remember of the implementation of things, i really don't see there being any change which can be done which then doesn't violate the way file associations are setup in Windows.

May be just use the "Open" handler like other programs. That problem happened when I cleaned by Right-Clock menu from additional options, programs like Zune, Media Player Classic - Home Cinema (I have 2 versions, 32 and 64 bit) work even w/o such element being set
