switch to windows media player 11

I know this thread exists elsewhere but it was from a while ago so I was wondering if anyone knows switch from WMP12 to WMP11 running 64-bit Windows 7...

I need the advanced tag feature back and WMP12 is quite lacking in this, as well as in many other areas... thx

Downgrade to WMP 11 *** note that this is all up to you as your decision. Download Windows Media Player 11 for Windows 7 (Replace WMP 12)

for the last time, people, this only works for 32-bit OSs. Don't waste your time with this. And people at Windows, reading these forums every now and then might help. The WMP12 issues have been a major problem since win7 RC went public. Why haven't you fixed it yet? I'm not trying to be a dick, but when so many people are trying to hack their way into using WMP11 on win7, then you know you have a problem.
