Hmm you need a guide, windows media center may prove more suitable not WMP.
http://www.xbox.com/en-AU/PCSETUP
Which version of WMP did you install?
WMP 12 natively bundled with your windows 7 same with the media center
Which windows 7 do you have?
Home? Pro ?
to connect your windows 7 to the Xbox you may need a media extender
Set up a Windows Media Center Extender

Please post back your version of Windows 7

Otherwise your answer was really the solution.
Thanks though glad to see it's solved.
