Windows media player (2 problems)

Hello my friends!!!!
nice to find a great forum like this for the windows 7 !!!

I have 2 problems with wmp and im wondering if someone knows a solution

problem 1: when i open an audio file it opens with wmp 32 bit? why????
know i made a wmp64 shortcut and i first open wmp64 and then drag the audio files in order to have 64bit!

any way to make wmp64 the default player?


problem 2: no wmp toolbar any way to get it back???
it was very helpful because i was able to adjust the volume, to move forward - backward and to have artist-title information very fast without to have to bring all the wmp window up!!

Thank you very much

Hi stampler, welcome to the forums, sorry for the late reply (leaked build LOL).

That's some strange errors you've got there, the only thing I can suggest at this stage is a Repair Install

This will repair your computer without deleting your user files & settings.

Hope it helps

What errors?

If you want to change the default player from 32-bit to 64-bit you can use this: Windows Media Player (WMP) - Vista Forums

Wouldn't recommend it though, there are some play issues when using a 64-bit player (make sure you download a 64-bit codec pack (such as Windows 7 codec pack))

For the WMP toolbar, I believe the only way to get it back would be to downgrade to WMP11.

1. 32-bit is the default player because it is more compatible with most codecs. The 64-bit is not better or faster than 32-bit.
2. As for toolbar i m still looking for answer.
