Question about Microsoft Windows Media Player

Error message: "The file wmploc.dll has a version number of 11.0.6000.6344 where 11.6001.7004 was expected. Windows media player was not installed properly and must be reinstalled. Do you want to inst

When I try to open windows media player 11 I get the message: "The file wmploc.dll has a version number of 11.0.6000.6344 where 11.6001.7004 was expected. Windows media player was not installed properly and must be reinstalled. Do you want to install the Player from the Microsoft Web site?" When I clicked yes and was sent to the web site I followed the directions to the letter. After downloading the suggested Windows media player 11 app, I ran it and got a message that said I could not install a version of windows media player that was older than my current version to replace or fix a problem. Do you have any suggestions? It happened after installing Avanquest Fix-It Utilities 9 Professional. Has this been a common problem?

    I've already done that before contacting you. But when I try to reinstall Windows media player I get a message that roughly says I can not install a version of Windows media player that is older than my current player. When I open the location of Windows media player the version listed IS: 11.0.6000.6344. any suggestions?

    I did restore my system to before I installed Avanquest fix-it utilities 9 and media player worked. I reinstalled Avanquest fix-it utilities 9 and Media player was messed up again. That leaves me two options, A) Live without media player (in which case I need to find a way to sync my music to my sansa clip mp3 player) Or, B) go without a virus/malware protector. I really do not like either option. I am running Windows Vista home basic service pack 1. I don't have the original windows CD because this software came installed on my laptop.

    Thanx so much. that was pretty much the conclusion I arrived at. I took a computer troubleshooting course at a local community college several years ago(before laptops were so mainstream) but it did not cover anything past windows 98. but all of the O.S. operate very nearly the same. All have some bugs. I've used XP and liked it, unfortunately, I can not afford it at this time. I used every method I was taught, and nothing worked. that's why I contacted you. Maybe I can be of assistance with someone else's tech problems in the future.

Hi,
This is not a very common problem, but in all likelihood your Avanquest software has altered your Windows files in such a way that you cannot install your media player.
Most fix-it utilities make back-ups of your system files as they were BEFORE running the utility.
Check in your Avanquest application to see if you can restore your system to the way it was before running the application, then try reinstalling Windows media player.
Let me know if you need any further assistance regarding the above.
Best wishes,
Graemevm

    Have you tried a system restore to restore your system to a date prior to upgrading media player or installing Avanquest? If you have done this with no luck then my only other suggestion is to do a full system repair using an original Windows XP CD.

    Good luck,

    I realize now that you are using Vista and not XP operating system. This is where the key to your problem lies. Vista is unfortunately riddled with with bugs and incompatibilities with all kinds of software.
    I myself bought a new Lenovo desktop system which came with a Vista home premium. In less than a week I formatted my hard drive and replaced Vista with XP professional as I could not install ANYTHING on the Vista platform without some kind of error message popping up on my screen. My point is that Vista has never been a great success to and is therefore being replaced by Windows 7 in the near future. I strongly suggest you try to obtain a copy of Windows XP and install it on your laptop until such a time as Windows 7 is released. XP is far more stable than Vista and you will no doubt have much fewer headaches using XP. XP also works with Media player 11 without any problems. In the mean while why not do a Google search for an application to rip your music. There's sure to be hundreds of freeware music ripping applications available.

    Hope this info will help you in making further decisions concerning your problem.
    Regards,

You need to manually register the DLL, by following the instructions at this URL:
http://ss64.com/nt/regsvr32.html

You will be using REGSVR32. You may need to unregister the DLL first, then Register it from scratch.

Good luck!

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 open Windows Media Player. Error “The file wmploc.dll has a version number of 11.0.6000.6336 where 11.0.5721.5445 was expected.”


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).
