Preferred Solution: Unable to download Windows Media Player upgrade 2.0.1.5 on Windows 7 system

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have not been able to open my windows media player. I have icons on my start menu and taskbar. When I click nothing shows. I went on line and clicked to download the player, it downloads, I save it and then run it. All I get is a blank setup window. I ran a trouble shooter and I get the message "cannot view XML using XSL style sheet". Help please.

Uninstall it using Revo Uninstaller and then try and reinstall. Otherwise I reccomend downloading VLC media player, its basic but can play just about any file you can think of.

First Many thanks to Forum Admin and Senior members.

I am using Toshiba Satellite A105-S4064, Windows XP Media Center Edition. Last night I had a problem while downloading movie content from www.rapidshare.com. I was downloading the content using Internet explorer (IE 7) . MY system stopped functioning and I tried hardly to restart it 3 or 4 times since everytime when I open Internet Explorer its hanging.

I restored the system to previous check point using Windows System Restore utilities but unable to resolve it..I restored again one more previous check point but still I am facing the problem.

Today I noticed that none of the windows GUI exe files are not running properluy (IE, System restore) and Anti Virus software MCAfee too!.

A best way to describe my system problem is when I open www.google.com in Internet Explorer I couldn't see buttons like "Web" "Images", "Video" etc. But I can see all these buttons in Firefox browser.... I am unable to run any of the .exe software (MCAfee Service centre, Media Player) etc...

I know there is only one option is to format the full system but I am hardly searching is there any way to recover my system because I am seeing the web pages properly in firefox but not in Internet Explorer.

Please help me..
 

A:Unable to run Windows Media player, System restore etc..

To me this sounds like serious malware infection. I suggest you follow the steps in the Malware Removal forum and see if your PC is infected.

Hi guys,
Using my desktop pc (Windows XP Professional), I copied songs from my cds to the computer thru Windows Media Player and then moved all the songs to my portable hard drive.
I connected my hard drive to my laptop (Vista Home Premium) and tried to play the files thru Windows Media Player. Unfortunately, WMP 11 did not play the file but opened a Mozilla Firefox window leading to a site that would ask me to download license.
Upon clicking the 'Download License' button, I encountered the error that said I had to install Windows Media Services plug-ins.
I searched for this plug-in and found out that it was associated with WMP 9 and not WMP 11 so I thought installation might cause conflicts or might create more errors. I'm not so good at computer and I don't even know which to install when WMP website gave me too many options and downloadables.
These make me so frustrated and I don't even know if I could still copy my songs from my hard drive to my laptop and play them.
Could someone please help me out? Please...

I am trying to download an audiobook from my local library. I generally use Overdrive Media Console to do this. When I try to download the book I get an error message letting me know that my Windows Media Player needs a Security Upgrade in order to play the DRM files. It tells me to click on TOOLS in the Overdrive toolbar and then Windows Media Player Security Upgrade. When I do this, a dialog box appears and tells me to make sure I am connected to the internet (I am) and click OK. When I click OK - nothing happens. When I read the Windows Help file - it indicates that when I click OK in the dialog box in Overdrive, it is supposed to open WMP and another dialog box. It never does.
The Help file gives me a web site to go to where I can upgrade manually - this appears to be a Microsoft website. The Upgrade button here is grayed out.
I made sure I was using IE as the browser.
I opened WMP manually to see if there was anything I could upgrade manually there.
I can't even determine what version of WMP I have since the Properties button is grayed out.
I just bought this computer yesterday... it's running windows 8

If anyone can help me I would greatly appreciate it! I very much miss my audiobooks and I am literally banging my head against the wall trying to figure this out!!!

thanks,

No you do not need any other software. It could be the file got corrupt on download. I'd suggest you clean your cache and temp files, download it again, save it to your disk, then try to install. There could be something else going on, but I don't know what it might be.

Hi all! My Windows Media Player has crashed. So, I went to download a new one.

Supposedly I need Windows Media Player 12, but when I get to Windows and they see
that I have Windows 7, they say I need to download their 'Windows Media Pack'.

That's OK with me, but I've tried 3 times to download it and it always comes up
and says "Windows Standalone Installer is not applicable to your computer". I
click OK - and nothing happens.

I take it I can't download Windows Media Player 11 because its for XP only? Or can I?

ANY adivice would be great!

A:Can't download Windows Media Player

You have Windows 7 and WMP 12 is built right into the system, so that's the version you're stuck with.

i have windows vista home premium with windows media player. i bought my first ever download. it went into my music folder, but windows media player doesn't see it, says it can't find it. i decided (I can't recall how i decided) that the problem was most likely because the download had a .htm file format. (It seems odd that music would be in .htm format, and that's one of my questions). anyhow, i downloaded a free translator to attempt to put the file into some form the player might recognize, but i could never figure out how to get the file into the translator, i couldn't figure out how to run the translator. finally, i got scared of goofing up my puter, and deleted the translator. I am totally lost! I can't find info anywhere on what file formats media player recognizes. I'm really excited to start learning this stuff---i havn't listened to my favorite music in about 20 years, and i really wanna do it. I don't know quite where to start and i feel discouraged.
 

A:windows media player doesn't see my download

.htm isn't a music file, so you're right about that.

It sounds as though you may have saved the LINK to the download instead of the song itself.

Hi,
I looked up the version I have of WMP and all it says is - Windows Media Player. So I don't know what version it is. I think it's just the one that came with my computer. Anyway, what I want to do is take an audio file, MP3, etc, and convert it to text, in order to have a transcription of the text.

I searched online on how to do that and what I read was to go to File - Save As and Save As... and select an output location. Under the “Type” drop down menu select “WAV” and click “Save.” Open Wave to Text. Go to “File>Import” and select the WAV file you just converted from MP3. The program fills the large white box in the window with the text from your audio file. Copy and paste the text to your favorite text editing program for further editing.

However, my version of WMP does not have a menu bar and so it does not give me the option to save. Do I need to download a different version of WMP? If so, what version would be best for this?

Thanks,
Josie

you don't download to media center
you download to a suitable folder on youir computer & add that folder to the music library that media center looks in to play songs

if you bought & paid for the song, look in my music for the song
it is quite possible that teh song is in a format that WMC doesn't recognize & you need to use an alternative player like windows media player to play it

You may be able to download the 64 bit version from the Microsoft Store. (I'm not sure. I got one of each X86 and X64, so the issue didn't arise for me.)

Failling that, there are links to legitimate .iso files at digitalriver.com from www.mydigitallife.com. You may find this helpful:

I have Windows Media Player for Windows 7 and when trying to burn a CD I get a box saying the player can't record some of the tracks and to check the icons next to them to investigate the problem. However, there are no icons next to any of the tracks. The first time I burned a disc there were a couple with icons next to them and apparently there were licensing issues, so I deleted everything that had an icon next to it and didn't have a problem for the past several discs I've burned. But now I'm getting this box again with no icons and although every one of the songs on the burn list have either been ripped from CDs or downloaded from Amazon. I've read all the other posts on similar problems but don't see one on this specific issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi guys,

I recently upgraded from Windows 8 to 8.1. After the update Windows Media Player doesn't recognize any of my libraries even though the correct folders are selected to be included.

I already tried to disable the windows media features in the control panel, reboot and then re-enable but that had no effect.

Incidentally, if I manually start playback of a song from a folder windows media player does work so the issue is just that it won't recognize my libraries.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Windows XP SP3 on a PC

I use the OverDrive Media Console to download audiobooks from the library. I am able to download MP3 audiobooks but when I attempted to download a WMA audiobook I got an error message 0xC00D2711 about the DRM component. I attempted to use the Windows Media Player Security Upgrade in the "tools' of the OverDrive Media Console but it didn't work. When I went to the Microsoft page for the upgrade the button wasn't clickable.

I used both IE7 and Firefox and it didn't work on both.

Is there another way of getting the upgrade to work?

Thanks!

Noticed a verion 11... Do you remove 10 through Add/Remove Programs & do a clean install? This seems like a dumb question to me, but because the thing is part of the OS I'm asking!

Thanks!

A:Proper Way To Upgrade Windows Media Player

There is no need to remove WMP 10. Version 11 installs right on top of it. I would suggest taking a few minutes & go through these two pages first: Windows Media PlayerReadme for WMP 11BTW: Dumb questions are the ones that aren't asked.

I have had a Sandisc 2.0GB SD Memory Card for about 4-5 months. Less than a month ago I sync'd about 20 CD's songs to the card. All of the files are still on the card and can be played with my mp3 player and vehicle stereo.

Now, when I plug my card reader with card into my computer's USB slot, the computer detects the device. I can open My Computer and add and delete files. Windows Media Player 11 says "Detected Removable Disc F." This says this then it goes away, then comes back about 5 seconds later, then goes away, then comes back.... The Sync tab at the top of the screen, it still says "Connect a device". Is it possible that my card is being read, then stopped being read before the "Connect a device" has time to see the card? If so, would a new card reader do the job, or is it something more?

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the device, but the problem is not solved.

I realize that I can still put files on it with through My Computer, but I've always done it through Windows Media Player 11 and it is much easier. When I try to put songs on the card, an error window pops up saying that the device is not ready.

I have come up with the theory that my card is being read, then stopped being read before the "Connect a device" has time to see the card. If so, would a new card reader do the job, or is it something more?

If anyone knows if this might be the problem, or what might be the problem and/or how to fix ... Read more

I'm in the midst of a weeks-long project to get every media type I can think of associated with the program that I prefer for opening it. (Let's just say it's tedious and get to the problem I'm having!) I've been using the windows "Default Programs" program, as well as "right click-->open with" on literally hundreds of file types and over a dozen programs, without issue. However, for some reason I can't get file types to associate with Windows Media Player. I can get those same file types to associate with other media players (which unfortunately don't open them properly), but not WMP.

When I open the list of all file types in Default Programs, I double-click on the file type I want; WMP isn't in the resulting list, so I go to "look for another app on this PC" and go to program files\windows media player\wmplayer.exe. When I select this exe, it goes back to the list of all file types, but the list doesn't refresh as it does when I associate a file type successfully to another program, and the file type is still unassociated. I've tried using the wmplayer.exe under the "program files (x86)" folder as well, with the same issue. When I right click on a file of that file type in Windows Explorer, I go through the same process; the file type isn't associated with WMP, and WMP doesn't open to open the file. I can open WMP and drag-and-drop the file into the window with no issues.

Anyone have any clue what could be going on here? Every ot... Read more

A:Unable to associate file types with Windows Media Player?!

Ah! 20 minutes after asking I finally found the problem. Windows Media Player was unchecked in "Program Access and Computer Defaults." Once I checked it, all was okay again.

That is currently what my WMP looks like. I want it to return it to the old screen where I could see my playlist, library, etc.

Here is what Microsoft says to do:

"To change to a different skin, do the following:
1. On the View menu, click Skin Chooser.
2. In the skins list, click the skin that you want to apply.
A preview of the skin appears.
3. To find and download skins from the Internet, click More Skins.
4. When you find a skin that you want to use, click Apply Skin.
You can change skins as often as you like, but you must be in full mode to do so. To return to full mode, press CTRL+1."

The only thing is when I click View; I have no Skin Chooser. Why would that be? Here is what the View menu looks like for me:
I have Windows XP Home SP2, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi all,

I'm having a problem with Windows Media Player 10. I recently subscribed to a gaming site (IGN) with streaming video. When I try to connect to the stream I get "A security upgrade is required to play this file. Do you want to download this file?" So I proceed with "Yes." It says it's downloading something for one second then prompts me with the same question. This happens one more time before it stops doing something and says "Ready." in the status bar. If I hit the play button, it starts the whole process over again. I've disabled all firewalls, blockers, etc. Can anyone help me with this? Thanks.

Are the files the same when using the Media Creation tool immediate upgrade vs waiting for the Windows download notification? I am upgrading from Windows 7 Pro . Tks

A:Upgrade using media creation tool vs Windows Download notification

Yes, they are the same.

Some said there is less problematic using the MCT to install than using Windows Update.

I used both methods, one to each laptop. To me, there is no issue on either install.

I prefer to use MCT instead of WU because I have no patience to wait for my turn to install.

By the way, there are 2 sources to download and install Windows 10.

After upgrading to Windows 10, Windows Media Player no longer will play .mp4 or .wmv videos. They played fine in Windows 7, but now, when I try to play a video in WMP, I get an error message saying that WMP is unable to play the file. I am using the latest Shark007 codecs which say are fully tested and supported for Windows 10. Is there a newer version of WMP for Windows 10, or is there something else I need to do?

A:Windows Media Player no longer plays .mp4 or .wmv files after upgrade

Same here. After upgrade, I can no longer play any WMV files stored on my computer. WTF Microsoft?
