Do a search for winmm.dll. The date should be 6/8/2000. If it's not, or if it is and you still get the error, then try restoring it using the following process:

START button/Run/msconfig/Extract
C:\Windows\System\winmm.dll

How do i fix error code C00D11B1 Media player 11 ?


Recognizing and Fixing Media Player Error Code c00d11b1

For the majority of Windows Media Player users who encounter the Media Player Error code c00d11b1 message, the problem only begins after they upgraded to 11. In other words, media player versions 9 and 10 worked perfectly well for them.

So, one option is to 'roll back' the player to a previous model that did not encounter any such problems.

To do this, initially go to Start, then Control Panel, and Add/Remove Programs. Next, click on the Windows Media Player 11 icon and click Uninstall.

It will ask if this is really the option you want to take. Confirm that it is, and then be patient as it may take several minutes for the operation to be completed. During this time, it may appear as if your PC has switched itself off, but it has simply deactivated all unnecessary extraneous computer operations, in order to retain memory and processing power for the job in hand.

Next, according to Microsoft, when this particular error code is encountered when trying to stream online video or audio, it most commonly indicates that the proxy settings for Windows Media Player are incorrectly configured.

This can be checked from the Tools menu within Media Player itself, after whch you need to click on Options. Then you must click the Network tab and in the Streaming proxy settings area, you need to verify your settings. If you're not sure what the correct settings are, first, click on Configure, and then in the Configure Protocol dialog box, select Autodetect proxy settings.

In some cases, you can also apparently encounter this problem if Media Player tries to receive an online stream by using the User Datagram Protocol (UDP), but for some reason, it cannot do so.

You may be able to fix this particular error by turning off this UDP option in the Player.

If these solutions are not effective, your problem may be something as simple as Media Player trying to access the wrong audio or video device on your machine.

Open Tools, select Options, and then select Devices. When this comes up, make sure that the correct audio for your PC is checked, and this could very well make your problem disappear.

If none of these operations is effective, then you may well need to check the underlying registry of your Windows operating system for defects and errors that may be causing Media Player to malfunction.

Almost inevitably you will find errors and defects in your registry whenever you run a thorough scan, and whilst it may not necessarily be possible to isolate a specific problem that is causing Media Player to malfunction, the cumulative effect could be the root cause of your difficulties.

If, therefore, you already have software installed on your machine that can scan and fix your registry for you, then you should use it.

If not, you can still avail yourself of a free online registry scan using proprietary software such as SpeedyPC. Whilst you will not be able to repair your registry errors without downloading and installing the full version of the software, nevertheless, the scan will indicate the extent of the problems that you have, and these problems may be what is causing you difficulties with Media Player.

Or download this software after downloading, install this software and try vlc media player. This will install (codec) compressor/decompressor for audio and video more supported multimedia.

Windows media player not working


Very the file you are trying to play is still there , if it is then create a new play list by allowing WMP to scan your system for playable media. If this fails or the above aint the latter then i'd suggest you uninstall WMP and reinstall it. WMP is in the control panel / add or remove components / Windows Components. You can also log in to microsoft web site and download the latese WMP and install it .

Problem using media player


If you are using a pirated version of windows and have installed any kind of update from the microsoft website you are required to install the Microsoft Genuine Advantage program. This will cause several programs to not work.

If you are not using a pirated version of windows your cd key has been obtained by someone else and has been registed under their details. I would suggesting calling the Microsoft Helpline and report your issue to them.

WMP 11 validation issue


Windows Media Player is a feature of the Windows operating system and cannot be removed entirely. However, depending upon which version of the Player and Windows that you are using, you might be able to roll back to the version of the Player that was previously on your computer. The procedure varies depending upon which version of the Player you are running.

If your computer is running Windows XP Service Pack 1 (SP1), Windows XP SP2, Windows 2000 SP3, or Windows 2000 SP4, you can use the Set Program and Access Defaults feature to remove links to the Player on your computer. Note that this does not remove the Windows Media Player software. To remove access to the Player, do the following: 1.
In Control Panel, double-click Add or Remove Programs.
2.
Click the Set Program and Access Defaults button, and then choose a configuration (such as "Non-Microsoft" or "Custom").
