Windows 7: how to repair WMP12?

23 Oct 2010   #11

From what I can see, you've managed to delete some codec files and some wmp12 files. First try repairing wmp12.

Windows Media Player Troubleshooting Guide

I think there are some more wmp tuts in the tuts section, you could check those also.

Then download and run a codec pack, whichever you prefer. I have shark's installed but klite works just fine.

If all that doesnt help, run a sfc scan to fix corrupted system files.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Hi matez,

I've started the file checker system, and it show "did not show any integrity violence" and I try my WMP any yet it didn't show any changes....

Now I encounter another problem during the "repair install", during the installation, it show that I should uninstall some software before continuing the installation, the software are like iTunes, and Window Mobile Diveces... After I uninstalled, then it show some device stop the installation, it ask me to update the device first, then continue with the installation... the device was "AJGNN6T7 IDE Controller" I've search it through the web, but I cannot get any solution.... Is there anyone here know what happen???

I try to do this installtion repair because I've accidently delete some file (I don't know what It is) when I uninstall a player with a 3rd party uninstaller, then it scan for any file that associate with that player to be removed, and during the removal process, I saw some of the file link was like "C;/.../WMP11/..." I can't recall the whole link but the "WMP11" word remind me of my window media player, and when I try to play video with WMP, it only show sound but not the visual, even worse with the mkv file, I play the sample video, it show that WMP cannot support because codec.... I've install shark, K-lite for the codec, but it solve nothing... Another player work fine, just WMP....

I'm suppose I've deleted some important file... Is there anyone know where can I found a WMP12 installer???? Please help me if you know...

Have banged this thread in here as we don't seem to have a WMP section and to me MCE is different from WMP. Anyone found how to change the colour of the media player from the standard shades of blue? If so how? PS - I don't want to change skins, just colours.
