For those users like me who prefer WMP11 over Beta 12, follow this guide.
Disclaimer: I take no responsibility if you break your windows media player, or windows itself for that matter. I recommend to take backups of *ALL* files that will be replaced, in case something goes wrong.
Now that that's over with, here is the guide. *Edits to Original Guide are in RED, please follow the new guide*
1.- run services.msc and stop Windows Media Player Sharing Service.
2.- take ownership of C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player
3.- take ownership of all files starting with wmp in C:\WINDOWS\System32\ 4.- take ownership of C:\Windows\System32\en-US\wmploc.dll.mui
5.- Delete the contents of C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player
6.- Copy the contents of Windows Media Player.rar to C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player
7.- Delete all files starting with wmp in C:\WINDOWS\System32
8.- Copy the files from wmp.rar to C:\WINDOWS\System32 *EDIT* DO NOT COPY WMPLOC.DLL in WMP.rar *EDIT*
9.- Copy wmploc.dll from wmploc_WMP11.rar to C:\Windows\system32\
10.- Copy wmploc.dll.mui from wmploc_WMP11.rar to C:\Windows\system32\en-US\
