Windows 7: Windows Media Player is Not Configured For the Internet

16 May 2009   #1

Windows 7 RC 1
Windows Media Player is Not Configured For the Internet

and the error message goes on to say: "to connect to the internet, run the internet connection wizard and then try again".

I AM connected to the internet. I have allowed internet connections within the Media Player settings, and Media Center has no problems connecting.

Hope it's ok to post a WMP question here.

Ok. So nobody has any ideas about that. How about this: is there a way to delete the configuration files for WMP and start it as though it were the first time? Thanks.
