Thanks for the correction. With some free time, I bit the bullet and did a clean install of MM4. I didn't get the feeling that the file association takeover was automatic. I saw the wizard prompt and dually unchecked the associations I didn't wish MM4 to assume. It was like any other mediaplayer installer. Yeah, ADD folks will have a fit with this.KEP wrote:theta_wave wrote:Automatically taking over file associations with any prompting is bad design in general.
I sense you meant "without" any prompting? Yes, indeed, that would be outrageous. But the problem with MM4 isn't that it it fails to ask. It's that it allows you to click right past it without even seeing the question. That first load "wizard" needs to lose the Finish option, because the default options are really just the sort that piss off a lot of folks who don't bother to read what they click. I've loaded MM4 on a few machines, and each time I had to go through and turn off the defaults, clicking Next for each page of the wizard. ADD folk gonna hate, with this design.
