Trouble updating windows media player
If you have run CCleaner or otherwise find that uninstall fails, you should still be able to use the System Restore point that WMP created in order to roll back to your previous player version.
If you have run CCleaner and System Restore does not work, contact Product Support - steps to do so are available under WMP's Help menu.
* To start the player in Now Playing, update your WMP shortcut to be "/Task: Now Playing" * The white corner dots that can appear aren't removable - either switch to Classic Menus or resize the player (which only fixes it until player restart). * You can uninstall the WMP11 through the Add/Remove Programs control panel.
If you have run old versions of CCleaner (they have fixed this in current builds), those will destroy WMP's ability to uninstall.
* The MMS protocol was deprecated many years ago (v9), and with WMP11 MMS URLs will only work if the server has MMS over HTTP support turned on (preferably for both "Enable HTTP distribution for Windows Media Station service" and "Enable HTTP streaming for Windows Media Unicast service". * If your remote content viewer doesn't see WMP's shared library, remove and readd the sync relationship.
(KB article.) MMS is only used as a rollover protocol in WMP11. * The Network Sharing Service needs the Universal Plug and Play Device Host, HTTP SSL, and SSDP Discovery services to be functional/running in order to work.
Reset that to 0x0 and Urge files should work again.
(This can lead to error 0xc00d11b1 if set wrong.) * If you're using a non-US locale format for your Date, the Recently Added feature won't work right (it likely won't show any content).
However, this FAQ also covers Windows Media Player 7 (WMP7), Windows Media Player 6 (WMP6), and Media Player for XP (MPXP).If this does fix you up, check with your sound card vendor - they should not be having this problem.I believe Dell/Sigmatel do have a driver update here that should fix you up.* To get a tally of the number of songs and their time from within the library, select them. Or hover the mouse over the "Now Doing" region, which is the region above the playlist.
If you're building a playlist in the rightmost library pane, you may need to push Stop in order to get the time to show up. You can get this if you ask your Microsoft contact nicely.
(The default drivers cannot talk to the proprietary amp on that system.) * Don't have "c:\users\me" monitored.
