Can Not Get Windows Media Player 9.0 to Open
Posted on 2004-10-24
I have a friend who is having a problem with Windows Media Player 9.0. When I went over there to help, I noticed when the Windows Media Player 9.0 was double-clicked, I got the following message: Internal Application Error. In an effort to resolve this problem, I went into Add/Remove Programs to remove the program. To my surprise, it was not there. Therefore, I assume it is probably a component or part integrated with the OS of XP Home Edition. Well, I went a step further and manually removed the windows media player within the Program Files folder and then went to the microsoft.com site and downloaded Windows Media Player 9.0. Now, when I try to install this newly downloaded setup file for windows media player, I get the following message: Your version of windows on this computer already contains a more recent version of windows media player. Windows Media Player 9.0 series setup will now exit. At this point, I am uncertain with regards to what to try next.
Any suggestions to this computer concern will be certainly appreciated. I look forward to hearing from each expert.
