I guess the best thing is to download the latest version of Media Player, and before you install it, you remove the version installed by the Control Panel/Add and Remove programs (and restart your system before continuing).

Here's a link to download the version 11 (even if there is 12 in the link).

Windows media player won't work


Which operating system ? Which version of Media player ?
Though designed with Windows 7 in mind, Windows Media Player 11 (WMP 11) is fully compatible with Windows XP.

The trick is knowing which version of WMP 11 to download.
Different versions of the software exist not only for Windows 7, Vista, and XP, but also for both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows XP.

Additionally, WMP 11 is only compatible with XP if it is using Service Pack 2 or Service Pack 3. Before downloading the appropriate installation file, you will need to verify which version your system requires.

Open the "Start" menu.
Open "My Computer."

Click "Help", then select "About Windows."
This will display a window with system information.

Find the listing that specifies your Service Pack. If you are operating without Service Pack 2 or 3, you will need to install one (see Resources).


Open the "Start" menu and click "Run." Within the text field, type "winmsd.exe."

Click "OK." Select "System Summary."
Find the heading labeled "Item."

Under this heading should be the word "Processor."
The value associated with "Processor" will determine which version of Windows XP you are running.

If the value begins with "x86," you are running a 32-bit version.
If it begins with "ia64" or "AMD64," then you are running a 64-bit version.

Download the Windows Media Player installation file that matches your version of Windows (see Below).
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/downloads/windows-media-player

Open the file once it has finished downloading.
This will launch the installation wizard.

Follow the onscreen instructions to install WMP 11.
The program should now run normally.
How to Fix Windows Media Center

Windows Media Center is the home entertainment hub on a Windows computer.
With Media Center, you can play live television, songs, DVDs and slideshows.

It is preinstalled on Windows XP Media Center Edition, Windows Vista Home Premium/Ultimate Edition and Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional, Enterprise and Ultimate editions.

From time to time, users run into issues trying to play audio or video files, or with an extender connected to Media Center.

Extenders are devices that allow you to "extend" the Media Center onto a TV screen or larger display.

The Xbox 360 gaming console is an example of an extender.
Launch Windows Media Center from your computer's Start menu.

Scroll down to "Music" on the Media Center home screen.
Select "Music library."

If you find an empty folder under "Music Library," navigate to the folder on your hard drive that stores your music file and add it to Media Center's library.

If the problem isn't an empty folder, look at the file extension on the music file that won't play. Media Center can't play files with unknown or incompatible extensions.

If you find a questionable extension, skip that file. Click once on another file with a different extension, one you know is compatible with Media Center, and then click "Open" to test if you can play that one.

Media Center will play MP3, CDA, WAV and other music file formats.
Open Windows Media Player from the Start menu if you receive a codec error while trying to play either audio or video files.

If you open the file in Media Player, the codec will download automatically.
You should then be able to play the file in Media Center.

Troubleshoot your firewall settings if a Media Center extender doesn't work.
You'll have a problem using an extender if Windows Firewall blocks it.

Go to "Control Panel" from the Start menu and double-click on "Windows Firewall."
Click on "Allow a program or feature through Windows Firewall."

Click to check "Media Center Extenders."
Click on "Apply."

Check external speaker cables to make sure they're connected if you can't hear any sound. Check the computer's volume settings by clicking on the "VOL+" icon at the bottom right corner of the main Media Center screen to make sure the volume is not turned off or down too low.

You may need to reconfigure your speakers if you're having volume or sound issues.
Scroll down to "Tasks" in the Media Center home screen and select "Settings."

Click on "General" and select "Windows Media Center Setup."
Click on "Set Up Your Speakers."

Follow the on-screen prompts to reconfigure your speakers.

When i open this error is come failed to get proc address for D3DPERF_SetOptions (d3d9.dll)


The d3d9.dll file belongs to the DirectX 9 software and its main function is to add DirectX functionality to Windows games and other multimedia applications.
D3d9.dll Errors
Many of the d3d9.dll errors occur when you have older version of DirectX on your PC. For instance, you may receive d3d9.dll errors, similar to the ones listed below in case you try to run a game that is specifically written for DirectX 9 on a PC that uses DirectX 8 or some other older version.
hope this helps

Hello i have a ati radeon 9250 and windows 7 it havent driver for windows 7 therefor i installed driver for windows xp in windows 7 all work good but in shutdown or restart i have blue screen...


The way to fix ATI2DVAG.dll errors is to first restart your PC into "Safe Mode With Networking". This will basically allow your PC to boot up without all the drivers and software which can cause it to crash. To do this, you should first restart your PC and then press F8 continually before Windows loads. After that, you should then select "Safe Mode With Networking" to boot your PC into that mode. When in safe mode, you should download a new version of the ATI Graphics Driver from the Internet, which should fix most of the problems you've been having with it. This can be done by downloading the driver from the ATI website and then re-installing it in Windows.

After updating the driver, try your PC in "normal mode" again to test to see if the problem has been fixed. If you find it hasn't fixed the issue, you should then go back into safe mode an manually replace the ATI2Dvag.dll error on your PC with a fresh copy of the file from the Internet. On top of that, you should also clear out the "registry database" of your PC with a registry cleaner. The registry database is a central storage facility for Windows, which basically keeps all the settings and options that Windows needs to use to run inside. This part of your system is very important and used to load up many different DLL files. To ensure no registry errors are causing problems on your system, you should download a registry cleaner program from the Internet, install it and then let it fix the errors your PC has.
You can fix ATI2Dvag.dll errors on your PC by using the tutorial and tools on our website. You can Click Here to fix ATI2Dvag.dll errors on your PC.
OR
Do not download ati2dvag.dll from a "DLL download" website. There are many reasons why downloading a DLL file is a bad idea. If you need a copy of ati2dvag.dll, it's best to obtain it from its original, legitimate source.
Note: Start Windows in Safe Mode to complete any of the following steps if you're unable to access Windows normally due to the ati2dvag.dll error.
Restore ati2dvag.dll from the Recycle Bin. The easiest possible cause of a "missing" ati2dvag.dll file is that you've mistakenly deleted it.
If you suspect that you've accidentally deleted ati2dvag.dll but you've already emptied the Recycle Bin, you may be able to recover ati2dvag.dll with a free file recovery program.
Important: Recovering a deleted copy of ati2dvag.dll with a file recovery program is a smart idea only if you're confident you've deleted the file yourself and that it was working properly before you did that.
Run a virus/malware scan of your entire system. Some ati2dvag.dll errors could be related to a virus or other malware infection on your computer that has damaged the DLL file. It's even possible that the ati2dvag.dll error you're seeing is related to a hostile program that's masquerading as the file.
Use System Restore to undo recent system changes. If you suspect that the ati2dvag.dll error was caused by a change made to an important file or configuration, a System Restore could solve the problem.
Reinstall the program that uses the ati2dvag.dll file. If the ati2dvag.dll DLL error occurs when you use a particular program, reinstalling the program should replace the file.
Important: Try your best to complete this step. Reinstalling the program that provides the ati2dvag.dll file, if possible, is a likely solution to this DLL error.
Update the drivers for hardware devices that might be related to ati2dvag.dll. If, for example, you're receiving a "The file ati2dvag.dll is missing" error when you play a 3D video game, try updating the drivers for your video card.
Note: The ati2dvag.dll file may or may not be related to video cards - this was just an example. The key here is to pay very close attention to the context of the error and troubleshoot accordingly.
Roll back a driver to a previously installed version if ati2dvag.dll errors began after updating a particular hardware device's driver.
Run the sfc /scannow System File Checker command to replace a missing or corrupt copy of the ati2dvag.dll file. If this DLL file is provided my Microsoft, the System File Checker tool should restore it.
Install any available Windows updates. Many service packs and other patches replace or update some of the hundreds of Microsoft distributed DLL files on your computer. The ati2dvag.dll file could be included in one of those updates.
Test your memory and then test your hard drive. I've left the majority of hardware troubleshooting to the last step, but your computer's memory and hard drive are easy to test and are the most likely components that might cause ati2dvag.dll errors as they fail.
If the hardware fails any of your tests, replace the memory or replace the hard drive as soon as possible.
Repair your installation of Windows. If the individual ati2dvag.dll file troubleshooting advice above is unsuccessful, performing a startup repair or repair installation should restore all Windows DLL files to their working versions.
Use a free registry cleaner to repair ati2dvag.dll related issues in the registry. A free registry cleaner program may be able to help by removing invalid ati2dvag.dll registry entries that might be causing the DLL error.
Important: I rarely recommend the use of registry cleaners. I've included the option here as a "last resort" attempt before the destructive step coming up next.
Perform a clean installation of Windows. A clean install of Windows will erase everything from the hard drive and install a fresh copy of Windows. If none of the steps above correct the ati2dvag.dll error, this should be your next course of action.
Important: All the information on your hard drive will be erased during a clean install. Make sure you've made the best attempt possible to fix the ati2dvag.dll error using a troubleshooting step prior to this one.
Troubleshoot for a hardware problem if any ati2dvag.dll errors persist. After a clean install of Windows, your DLL problem can only be hardware related.
Good luck
If this helps you resolve your problem, please
consider giving me a good rating and a quick
"thanks" or "good job".It will help me as well.
Thank you.

Microsoft Windows Media Player is a free media player software that comes with the personal computer version of Windows operating systems. The software supports basic file formats such as WMV, WMA, AVI, MP3, and ASF. The player included in Windows XP gives you the power to create your own CDs, search and organize digital media on your PC, and copy files to portable devices such as CDs and pen drives.
Fix Windows Media Player Problems
Corrupted and missing DLLs files, incorrect registry entries, and outdated files are some of the causes of Windows Media Player errors. Covered here are a few steps that you can take to fix common problems.
C00D11CD: Unknown Error
C00D11CD errors occur when an operating system component or some other program encounters an error and does not communicate it to Windows Media Player. Due to its generic nature and multiple reasons for occurrence, there is no specific solution to this problem.
If you encounter the error when trying to play an AVI or MPEG 2 file, then most likely, you do not have the correct codec version installed on your system. To fix a Windows Media Player problem related to codec, search for the required codec on the Internet, download it, and update it on your system to play the required file.
Windows Media Player uses Digital Rights Management (DRM) to authorize copying files to a CD or to download them from an online music store. If you do not have DRM authority to copy a particular song, you will not be able to play it and the error will pop up.
Windows Media Player uses the wmadmoe.dll file to encode files. If something goes wrong with this file, you may get the c00d11cd error when you try to copy songs from a CD to your hard disk. To fix a Windows Media Player problem in this situation, you must register the DLL file by running the command ‘regsvr32 wmadmoe.dll’.
80040155: Interface Not Registered
If this error occurs when you try to burn songs into a CD, then the most probable cause is that the required player files are no longer registered on your system. To fix this error, try to reinstall your Windows Media Player or download and install a newer version of the player, if available on the internet.
800C2EE2: Action timed out
This error occurs when your Windows Media Player is unable to connect to a server due to problem in the network, and therefore cannot play protected audio/video files that you download from an online music store. Incorrect Internet Explorer security settings might be the cause of this problem. To fix this, open Internet Explorer and select Tools-Internet Options-LAN Settings. Next, clear the Automatically detect settings check box.
C00D0FAA: Cannot rip the files
The error usually occurs when you try to rip CDs to MP3 format. Existence of entries from an earlier player version in the registry might be the reason behind this problem. One way to fix this problem is by adjusting the audio quality. However, if you want to maintain the audio quality, then to fix this Windows Media Player problem, open the Registry Editor by running the Regedit command and navigate to the subkey given below.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Sett ings\MP3Encoding
Here, open ‘LowrateSample’ and delete the value displayed in the Value Data box. Select OK and exit Registry Editor.
Many times errors also occur when there are corrupt files on the system or there are invalid DLL entries and other related incorrect entries in the system registry. For this, you must try to download reliable registry cleaner software from the Internet and scan your registry for invalid entries. Using registry cleaner software, you can easily and efficiently fix Windows registry problems, and make your PC free from irritating errors.
Errors can occur in Windows Media Player due to outdated files, missing or corrupt DLL files and incorrect registry entries. Most of the time, you can fix Windows Media Player problems by updating missing files or by upgrading the player to a later version. Additionally, to prevent registry-related problems, you can use a registry cleaner software to regularly scan the registry and eliminate invalid DLL entries and corrupt values from it.

Unable to load Roxio Creator 2009. Message says 'wizard was interrupted, your system has not been modified'. My operating system in Vista Home Premium.


During the installation of DirectX 9 portions of Creator 2009, the installation halts, it perhaps tries to roll back, gives an error....wizard was interrupted ... and cannot be completed.

Resolution
Open My Computer (or Computer for Vista users) from your Start menu.

Go to C: drive -> Windows folder -> System32 folder.

Look for a file called dsetup.dll in the System32 folder.

Rename the file to "dsetupOLD.dll" or delete the file.

Reinstall Creator 2009 and follow the on-screen instructions.

It helped some..
