Fine, you have attempted the majority of the things suggested. Have you attempted to run the System File Checker? This be supposed to restore new system files.
1. Reboot your computer and log on as an administrator.
2. Click Start menu and type cmd this will open command prompt window now right-click cmd.exe and select Run as administrator, as well as after that click Continue.
3. Type: SFC /SCANNOW wmp.dll, furthermore after that click OK.
Also, a repair install be supposed to approved this.

Re: Windows 7 - Can't run "Windows Media player"

This error message pop-up remains coming up at whatever time I attempt on the way to open Windows Media Player. My PC had recently been installed by means of Windows 7 from Windows Vista on CD. Windows Media Player by no means functioned from the begin, when it prompt to download the windows player from windows site I clicked but it said that there were at present no accessible downloads. It has been similar to this for a month or else two at the moment, and it at a standstill does not work. I'm in reality irritated. How can I resolve this problem please let me know?
