Okay, so I've searched the internet high and low for a solution to this issue. Hopefully someone can help me out.

Windows Media Player 11 is installed on the workstation. Unfortunately, it won't allow for minimode on the taskbar and in fact is not even showing as a possible toolbar. I think I need to learn how to make the toolbar for WMP but am not sure. Here is what I've tried thus far:
  • I've rolled back from WMP 11 to WMP 10 - still did not work. :flowers:
  • I've uploaded WMP 11 after the rollback - still did not work. :trumpet:
  • Uninstalled WMP 11 (according to instructions on Microsoft site) and reinstalled - still did not work :inlove:
  • Overtop installation of WMP11 - still not working :cool:
I would really like to utilize the whole minimode option especially since I work in the cubicle farm. :thumbsup: Any help anyone can offer would be great.

Just to further this along a bit, I've already tried the following today as well:
  • Click Start, Run and type: regsvr32 "%programfiles%\Windows Media Player\wmpband.dll" Press Enter. Logoff and login back. - But it didn't work
  • C:\windows\inf\unregmp2.exe /ShowWMP /SetShowState; regsvr32.exe "c:\program files\windows media player\wmpband.dll"; regsvr32.exe c:\windows\system32\wmp.dll - But it didn't work either
Thanks for any help!!
