can anyone help register windows media PIA?

I'm trying to use windows media player nine in my application, but when i try to import...

Imports Microsoft.MediaPlayer.Interop

 it does not work i get the blue line under telling me that it does not find it

i try to follow some directions at microsoft ,but some how their directions dont get me anywhere becasue i dont find the folders they tell me to find
such as:

all programs
windows media SDK
player sdk samples         <=== can not see this

I think is a registering problem of the PIA but i just cant register it

can anybody give me new directions a\on getting this to work?

Well no one responded to this questions. I have found a solution so i guess i will take the credit  :)

My problem was that even though i followed microsoft intructions to  register PIA, apparently was not really getting done even though it told me it did.

I had to add a reference by browsing to the  redist folder and selectin  WMPPia.dll

Hope this help somoone else.
