    Run cmd with admin privilege and type: UNREGMP2.EXE /UPDATEWMPVERSION

    and then press Enter.

    If that doesn't help, type: regsvr32 wmp.dll

    and then press Enter.

    Did you check to see if WMP was working after doing the first step or did you straightaway go to the second step without checking after first step?

    Anyway, try disabling/re-enabling WMP from the Control Panel using the Turn Windows Features on or off option.

    No, this is not because of pirated edition. Nothing to do with that that. Its happening cuz the wmp.dll is out of sync with the registry settings.

    It had happened to me in the past but running regsvr32 wmp.dll in cmd (Right click and run as administrator) usually fixes the problem.

    Dude, he ain't looking for alternatives. Why do you guys keep suggesting alternatives instead of trying to help him fix the issue? WMP is a great software that actually works for the most part. Why would he wanna switch to something else if this problem can be fixed? Atleast it doesn't hurt to try.

    Well since nothing much is working for you, I am laying down all the other options here in the hope that atleast one of them will work:

    Run cmd as administrator (Right click and Run as administrator) and then run: sfc /scannow

    Let it run to 100% completion and see if it can find and fix any dll corruption.

    If that doesn't work either, download this utility: http://www.thewindowsclub.com/downloads/FixWMP.zip

    Click on the fix button beside the 6th option on the list of fixes.

    Edit: In the meanwhile, I am trying to find a solution to the renaming error posted above.

    OK I am been able to manually edit wmploc.dll on my laptop and change the version number to the one you need.

    First of all, try the two fixes mentioned in my previous post. If both fails, you need to start your computer in safe mode and then go to C:\Windows\System32 folder and then replace your wmploc.dll file with the one I have uploaded:

    http://www.megaupload.com/?d=F02X38TQ

    Note: If you have already downloaded the file using the previous MU link, please re-download using the above link again as I made further modifications to the file and re-uploaded it.

    If you can replace the file successfully. There's a 99% chance your problem might be fixed.
