P.S I don't understand the points thing either.. lol

Hi DannonZ,

It's a Windows Media Player ActiveX control OCX and comes with WMPlayer.

I've got a copy here for Win98, but I think you could also download it from here:
(For complete Windows Media Player)

or just the VB Components at:

As Zacher explained, you'll have to register it also, I believe the link for the VBComponents (with the executable VBRun60sp3.exe will take care of the registering part though).

This Microsoft Knowledge Base article explains about the usage of Regsvr32.exe:

Q249873  Explanation of Regsvr32 Usage and Error Messages

Basically, get to a DOS prompt and type the following command line (followed by the Enter key):

regsvr32.exe comdlg32.ocx

If it worked, you should get a success message.

You will probably need to type this command first, to change to the directory where regsvr32.exe and comdlg32.ocx are residing:

cd \windows\system

Prinny, how about some feedback.  Have you tried the regsvr32 command, and if so, what happened?
