    Hi, I finally found the solution !
    Add this to regedit ;
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\WMP11.AssocFile.FLV]
    @="FLV Video"

    @="{031EE060-67BC-460d-8847-E4A7C5E45A27}"

    All apps ,which can play the .flv-file are now in the "open with"-list !
    Perfect, problem solved ..........
    I could solve this only by comparing some regedit-files with good working OS.
    It worked ok in 1607 ,but after the upgrade to 1703 this WMP-reg.file was gone .........

    Have to thank you all ,for helping me with this problem !!
