    Cant install Windows Media Player 11 - help!!

    Hi all

    I have tried five times to install the update for WMP10 to WMP11, however
    each time it fails and I cant figure out why!!! I currently have Windows
    Media Player 10.00.00.4036, I have checked the Windows Update website to see
    the error code given when it fails, and it is always the same - 0xC00D2B00. I
    use Windows XP Pro, and have installed all of the critical and security
    updates as at today (17/02/07). Can anyone help please????

    Thanks

    If any updates continually fail to download or install via Windows Update,
    it's always a good idea to locate and manually download for the software then
    perform a manual install. You can download WMP11 for Windows XP from here...

    RE: Cant install Windows Media Player 11 - help!!

    Hi GaryM

    I have tried this, but when I double click the downloaded file, I keep
    getting the error message that it is not a valid Win32 application!! Am I
    doing something obviously wrong?? One strange thing I did notice was that,
    even though the website says the files is 25.2Mb in size, on my hard drive it
    shows up as 19.9Mb??? I re-downloaded it a few times, but each time the size
    of the downloaded file was about 20Mb in size. I also made sure each time
    that the download did not stop part way through, or something similar, but it
    all seemed to download fine. Can anyone please suggest what may be the
    problem??

    Thanks

    RE: Cant install Windows Media Player 11 - help!!

    The invalid Win32 application message is because the file is incomplete. I
    just downloaded the 'wmp11-windowsxp-x86-enu.exe' file using the original
    link I posted and if I right-click the file in Windows Explorer and look at
    it's properties, the file size is as follows...

    - Size: 24.5 MB (25,755,448 bytes)
    - Size on disk: 24.5 MB (25,755,648 bytes)

    The file runs fine and I get no invalid Win32 application error message.

    It sounds like something is preventing the complete file downloading to you
    PC which is maybe the same reason that Windows Update can't install it
    either. If you have any download managers on your machine I suggest you
    disable them and try downloading again.

    You could also try again using a direct link to the file below...

    http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...xp-x86-enu.exe

    If that doesn't work then try finding a similar (or bigger) size file on the
    internet to see if you have a general problem downloading any file which is
    over a certain size.
