Windows 7: How to make HE-AAC audio to work in WMP?

How to make HE-AAC audio to work in WMP?

Does anyone know how to install and get the Orban / Coding Technologies AAC/aacPlus(TM) Player Plugin(setup_AAC_aacPlus_pluginbase_1_1_52.exe) to work?

I have a video file with HE-AAC audio that won't play on my WMP, or VLC, but it does play using MPC.

I've done the following:
1) Downloaded the setup_AAC_aacPlus_pluginbase_1_1_52.exe

2) Double clicked the .exe...I OK'd the licence box, and it installed.

3) Tried to play my, but no audio.

4) I then found a forum that said 'To use a aac+ stream in WMP use 'icyx://ipnumber : port' (not http)'. I didn't know what that meant, but it looked like a web address, so pasted that into my browser, and I OK'd a permission box, which opened my WMP, with an 'updated' in the lower right corner.

5) My file still would not play audio.

6) Re-booted, WMP still won't play the audio of the video.

Anyone know how to get this to work?
