I've successfully created a batch file which is thanks to OldNewbie (thank-you very much) - all it has in it is exactly what old newbie told me to put in. It works... It loads the .avi file in Windows Media Player beautifully!

Now im trying to figure out how to choose the program it opens in... e.g. DivX player!

If anyone could look into it, then please do... i will be MOST grateful (greatful?).

gSOLO_01 - have you come up with anything?

Thanks in advance...
