I think prefetch has something to do with starting an application faster. The prefetch tag tells windows to do something so the application starts more quickly

If you go into C:\Program Files\Window Media Player you will find it. MS installs 2 versions x86 and x64. You will also see WMP in C:\Program Files (x86)\Window Media Player
I hope you took into consideration that I'm using Windows XP x64 Edition... but upon further investigation, Windows didn't install a 64-bit version of Windows Media Player. There doesn't even seem to exist a folder for it:


Perhaps I'm missing something. I'll upgrade to Seven sooner yet.

Yes I must be missing something! I thought this was the Windows Seven Forum not the XP forum.

WMP12 x64 two icons issue

I am having same problem with x64 wmp. I unpinned 32 bit, pinned 64 and ... I just solved the problem I think. I opened x64 wmp that is pinned. once it opened another icon, I removed first icon and then right click on the second icon and PIN it. Close WMP and open it with the icon and you only get one. At least I just got one.
