WMP11 fails to open video file
The the video file is copied from video DVD. I double-click on the file
but the video fails to start playing. The video can be played if I go
from "File", "Open", specifies the file name and click "Open". On
another machine I have, there is no such problem. Both machines are
running WMP 11 on Vista Ultimate.
Any suggestion would be appreciated.

Thanks for your response.
It is not a problem of file association because WMP launches when I
double click the file. But WMP just does not play the video.
