    unable to install WMP on windows 7, Error:"Windows Media Player is not installed properly."

    I am running Windows 7 Home Premium x64. Some time ago my Windows Media Player went to one side of me and stops working. I ongoing to acquire a message box say "Windows Media Player is not installed properly and have to be reinstalled. Do you want to install the player from the Microsoft Web site?" Clicking the "Yes" button takes me to a MS website that gives the useless message apologizing profusely for his singular lack of help and cheerfully suggested I look for an update. Digging into several records with the Event Viewer do not show me anything. So now I'm screwed. So how do a repair installation of WMP 12, can anyone suggest on this and so that I can solve miner issue.

    I'd suggest that you make the system file checker. To do this, follow these steps: Go to Start, then snap on the program and choose all the accessories and after making a strike in the command prompt. Now, beneath the command prompt type the following and push Enter.
    sfc /scannow
    Now when you finish this command reboot your system and then check out your issue.

    I have faced this same issue and I have followed the below steps to resolve mine issue. To do this follow the steps below: first unlock the start symbol on the desktop and then go to the run and beneath the run type cmd and then hit the ok button. Now under the command prompt write the following and then hit the enter after every command:
    UNREGMP2.EXE /UPDATEWMPVERSION
    UNREGMP2.EXE /UPDATEWMP
    EXIT
    Now restart your system and then check out your issue
