Well I'm glad to hear it just wasn't using a different disc.

It certainly is a bit vague to say the least!

However, for anyone else looking for a resolution, I found this - it does say Vista, so I am not certain if it would work in Windows 7:

I agree. Good link by the way, should work in W7.
The solution in this thread that the OP used seems like a standard MS procedure for when they don't really know what is wrong: turn off and turn on again...
Your link seems more logical but we'll have to wait for the next thread to test

Thanks Irene for that site. That works in my brain. I can understand how that works.

You say it's vague but for anyone who's been following this thread all they had to do was click on the link in post #25 where I say that procedure worked.
Windows Media Player missing from Set Program Access and Computer - Microsoft Answers

And the procedure listed is the one I posted....

Also I tried that link you posted before I came here just to make sure I exhausted all options but without success.

I have been reading it more than once. In you post #27 you stated.
Also in "Change AutoPlay Settings" I selected WMP but inserting a cd autoplay doesn't work?
That left me with the impression that everything wasn't quiet proper yet.
That's why I wanted to make sure in my mind how everything got fixed. Sorry for the bother.

Our (the experts here) issue is not with the thread as is. Our issue is that that thread does not tell us what was really wrong. All it does is a fix-it-all by de-installing and then install again. We hope that the solution Irene points to, is more to the point.
