Hi,

I'd like to use an embedded WMP control on a vb.net forms application in 64 bit, however it appears that the Interop.WMPLib is not 64bit compatable. Is there an alternative?

An error occurred creating the form. See Exception.InnerException for details.  The error is: Could not load file or assembly 'Interop.WMPLib, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null' or one of its dependencies. An attempt was made to load a program with an incorrect format.

I'm particularly familiar with the WMPLib you've cited - did you download the Interop.WMPLib somewhere, or import it from a DLL on your system? If the latter is the case, you may just need to import the DLL from C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player (which is the 64-bit version, as opposed the 32-bit edition in C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Media Player).

tgerbert,

Many thanks for the reply, do you know where it can be found, i've got a 64bit win7 machine, and its not in the C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player directory?

C:\Windows\system32\wmp.dll works for me on my 64-bit Windows 7 system.
