Windows 7: WMP Licenses?

29 Jan 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate X64 SP1
WMP Licenses?

Just found a disk with all my music on it, transferred it over to my PC, only problem is with about half the songs it tries to open Internet explorer, rather than play,

now if i remember rightly, this was something to do with DRM or Licenses, and when this happened on Vista i just had to click an "ok" and it downloaded the relevant licenses and that was that, unfortunately, my Internet is down at the moment, im being diverted to a "broadband service unavailable" page before i can copy the relevant link to download it manually from another PC, i dont suppose, someone has the link to the right page?

  1. Open Media player

    If the Player is currently open and you’re in Now Playing mode, click the Switch to Library button in the upper-right corner of the Player.
  2. In the Player Library, click Organize, and then click Options.
  3. Click the Privacy tab.
  4. Uncheck Download usage rights automatically when I play or sync a file.
That should solve your problem

I'm not sure where to ask this, but I noticed that the $319 Windows 7 Ultimate pack says it comes with the 32-bit and 64-bit versions. Does anyone know if this can be reinstalled if a PC is clean-installed at some point, or is it a one-time shot? Also, any idea how many machines I can put it on...
