I had a big problem with foobar on Windows 8 also.
No matter how many times I associated my music files with foobar it would not open them.
When I double clicked on the files nothing would happen. If I opened foobar and dragged and dropped the files into the app I would get the forbidden symbol on my cursor and Windows would not let me drop the file into foobar.
The only was I was able to use foobar was to open the app and use foobar's open file dialog.
vlc worked fine though...

You guys want to hear something really strange?
Just for the heck of it I reinstalled foobar in portable mode and guess what?
Now it DOES work.
Once I tell Windows that I want foobar to be used for music files they open with foobar with no problem.
Weird........
