  1. Windows Media Player problems


    Hi guys, I keep getting errors in Windows Media Player (WMP).
    To be more specific, slow start, then hangs & after 15 secs or so I can use it, with no problems.
    But the Windows Problem Solver/Troubleshooter says that my Settings are corrupt & the other one says my Library is corrupt. Problems are logged at the end of the Troubleshooter Wizard, but no repairs available/present. So this tool is useless to me. It was so in previous versions as well...

    Anyway, I found a tool on the WindowsClub which re-registers all the .dll's called Fix WMP.
    Also when I run this tool WMP still has those same errors in the Troubleshooter & also when the program opens.

    I've un- & re-installed WMP but that didn't help either.
    I renamed C:\Users\wouldn't you like to know LOL\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Media Player
    to Media Player.old, so WMP created a new folder with the next restart, and you guessed it, to no avail either...

    So I don't know what to try next...
    Any ideas?

    :)

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Communities.

    What is the exact error message you get when you to try play files on Windows Media Player?

    I suggest you to run both Windows Media Player Library and Settings troubleshooter and check.

    Step 1: If your computer is having problems playing video or audio files in Windows Media Player, try using the Windows Media Player Settings troubleshooter to fix the problem. The troubleshooter checks the configuration and network settings
    for Windows Media Player to make sure that you can play content you've downloaded and saved to your computer, or content streaming over a network or the Internet.

    Steps to run Windows Media Player Settings troubleshooter are as follows:

    • Press Windows key + X and select Control Panel.
    • In the search box, type troubleshooter, and then click
      Troubleshooting.
    • Click View all, and then click Windows Media Player Settings
      and follow the instructions.

    Step 2: If your computer is having problems accessing your collection of digital media files in the Windows Media Player Library, try using the Windows Media Player Library troubleshooter to fix the problem. The troubleshooter makes sure
    Windows Media Player is correctly installed on your computer, and checks to see whether your Player Library is corrupted.

    Steps to run Windows Media Player Settings troubleshooter are as follows:

    • Press Windows key + X and select Control Panel.
    • In the search box, type troubleshooter, and then click
      Troubleshooting.
    • Click View all, and then click Windows Media Player Library
      and follow the instructions.

    Please reply us on the status of the issue to assist you further.
