m3u files open winamp but don't play anything

I have several hundred folders with .m3u and .mp3 in them.

I got a new computer and installed Winamp fresh. When I double-click the m3u files, winamp opens but the playlist is unchanged (whatever was in the playlist previously is still there).

Basically opening any m3u file is no different than opening winamp directly.

When I drag an m3u file into the playlist, it will play the mp3 file properly. So what's going on? How do I fix this? I already tried deleting all %appdata%\winamp\*.m3u and *.m3u8 files and it doesn't fix the issue.

My file associations look good, screenshot here:

Any ideas?
