I am not sure what you mean by download a WMP. If you start your current WMP and hit CTRL+M or hit the ALT key, select help and check for updates...

If this is not what you mean, please explain further.

Thanks Saltgrass,
This is an installation of windows 7 professional N which doesn't come with a media player pre-installed.
Hence the problem of trying to get a windows version (11 or 12) WMP on my machine.

Thanks Derekimo,
That hit the spot. The package also contained other worthwhile goodies besides the WMP.
Thanks again,
