Inherent "Open With" feature error

A cursory search turned up nothing on this, so apologies if it's already been covered. Please note that this has to do with Calibre's built-in Open With feature and not the third-party plugin of the same name.

The gist is that I can't configure the Open With feature. As soon as I right-click on the ebook format in the Book Details, get the following error:

Code:
calibre, version 5.3.0
ERROR: Unhandled exception: <b>TypeError</b>:string argument without an encoding

calibre 5.3 [64bit]  embedded-python: True is64bit: True

  File "calibre\gui2\open_with.py", line 62, in entry_to_icon_text
TypeError: string argument without an encoding
I'm fairly certain that something is hosed with a program I have configured to open epubs, but I can't get TO the Open With configuration to delete the configured entry. Bit of a catch-22.
