Question about Operating Systems
I have a dell inspiron laptop that was on XP. I bought vista home premium and to save problems formatted the hard drive and loaded vista as a 'virgin' instal. however i can't get windows media to work. system says it's installed so won't re-install it, system will allow me to play music & films through media centre but i prefer media player. Any ideas how to get around this?
Remove the wmv you already have and install a newer version one that helps a lot!!! hope that was helpfull

First try uninstalling all media players....and maybe even make sure all references to them are gone if you feel comfortable using regedit (I think that's still available in Vista but I haven't had need to use it since I was "afeared" to try the 64 bit version.) Then you should be able to install the old player....but....why not look at some of the freeware players out there. They are excellent (and don't try to take control / give you junk you don't need) and simple.
