Windows Media Player in this case has a script error that causes it not to respond on any OS platform that has yet to be fixed by updates. I have currently updated it to its fullest and it refuses to respond properly on windows xp, let alone beta versions of windows like windows 7. My suggestion is forget windows media player 11 and go download VLC player which plays more things off the bat anyways. Its free and easy and small. There is also any number of other media players like Realplayer, Quicktime, or Windows Media Player Classic.

Try to download it again, cause maybe the upgrade that you have downloaded is not complete or has corrupt files in order for it function well. if you have tried to download it again and theres no positive results, just uninstall and just use the older version for the meantime.

Try resetting the DRM (Digital Rights Management) for Windows Media Player. 1. Open the 'Control Panel'.
2. Open 'Folder Options' and select the 'View' tab.
3. Select 'Show hidden files and folders'.
4. Uncheck 'Hide protected operating system files'.
5. In the warning message you receive, click 'Yes'.
6. Click 'OK'.
7. Close the Control Panel
8. Rename the DRM folder to DRM.old.
-C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\ DRM
9. Close this window and open OverDrive Media Console.
10. Go to “Tools > Windows Media Player Security Upgrade”.
If it will not run from the OverDrive Media Console, the security
upgrade may also be run by going to (in Internet Explorer only) the
following site: http://drmlicense.one.microsoft.com/Indivsite
11. Download an OverDrive Audiobook.
