I'm sorry to have to inform you, the x64Components are required for playback in 64bit players but the 64bit installer has no options other than installation location and you also need the 32bit codecpack installed for proper x64 functionality.

The 64bit settings application has a radio selection on the Config TAB to make the 64bit WMP the default player - after using that, go to the help TAB and associate filetypes to the Windows players.

If I go this route I'll be careful to follow your instructions. Thanks.

Joules, are you saying that Foobar can be configured to install only the desired codecs, and that it does so in a local directory?
