Running Outlook 2016 msi, up-to-date as of 8/5/16. When I try to preview a mp3 attachment, Outlook gives the following message:

"this file cannot be preview because there is no previewer installed for it"

I use VLC Media Player (newest release), and have it set to have all defaults in Windows 10 Pro.

Changing this registry key (mentioned elsewhere) did not fix this problem.
computer\hkey_local_machine\software\wow6432node\microsoft\windows\currentversion\previewhandlers\{00020827-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}


Been searching around for a couple hours, and tried a few things that looked promising, but still no way to preview a mp3 file in Outlook 2016.

Anyone else having this issue found a solution?

Go to your file associations and select Windows Media Player as the default player for MP3.

this worked for me.
