Windows 7: Need WMP 12 download

I've had the WMP no install problem and fixed it by accident when I chased down an error code from the Event Viewer. Is your event viewer working? It had something to do with permissions....

There is away to fix it by taking ownership of certain files. Glad that you sorted it.

I looked in EventViewer, and I found:

"Service 'WMPNetworkSvc' did not start correctly because CoCreateInstance(WindowsMediaPlayer) encountered error '0x800700c1'. If possible, reinstall Windows Media Player."

Go to %ProgramFiles% (and %ProgramFiles(x86)% for 64-bit OS) folder, and delete the Windows Media Player folder

Then go to
  1. Open Turn Windows features on or off again.
  2. Check (tick) the checkbox for Windows Media Player and/or Windows Media Center.
  3. Restart computer.
See if that helps.

Isn't there any other way I could get this thing to work than having to reinstall windows? I heard repairing windows causes problems with the drivers.


I have never had a problem with drivers on windows 7, either repair or clean install, I've only had to update my gfx driver from nvidia.

It's been a while but I think I had to take ownership of some folder and reset its permissions. It fixed the Event viewer, MP, WMC and made it possible to start Defender automatically. I just wish I could remember the error code.......

These are the files that need to be replaced with Widnows 7 original files:


And here's the error message I'm getting:
Have you tried clicking yes to this message to download from microsoft?

I remember when I was struggling with this I was trying to replace the dll's and discovered that the version number has to match the version number of the original file. There are a bunch of different version numbers so I ended up getting them from our secondary computer which had the same OS installed from the same disk as mine. It still did not solve the problem.

Tried that, did not work.

I tried running the setup_wm in the Windows Media Player folder after I restarted it back on, and I got this:
