Something I've been noticing lately is that the 'Set Default Programs' link will give an error saying you have to set associations from the control panel, but if you then set Winamp as the default for mp3s by right-clicking on one and doing open with, then closing and re-opening the menu a few times, suddenly clicking on the button will work and let me set the default for 74 file types to Winamp at once. No idea why the button is so picky or what criteria needs to be met for it to open, but every time I want to do this on a new computer I just keep at it until the button works.

It might have something to do with the way you access the menu window to open it. I don't know.

Of course, it is impossible to bulk set it as the default file type from the control panel without using this button because it never shows up as a program on the list for me at all.
