I'm trying to listen to some music on my Windows Media Player... and I got a message that says this:


A license is required to play this file

The file you are trying to play was ripped (copied) from an audio CD.

During the ripping process, the file was "protected." This limits the number of computers on which the file can be played.

To play the file on this computer, you must download a license (a process known as "license migration"). A license acts an electronic key that allows you to "unlock" a protected file and play it.

To download a license for this file, click Download License.



Upon trying to download the license, I receive this prompt:

Error: your Netscape browser does not have "Microsoft® Windows Media Services" plug-ins installed.



I've got Windows XP, using Firefox... How can I solve this?

I ran the wizard, and got a message that says:


License Update Completed.

1 license could not be updated.

Restore your licenses by using the License Management tool in Windows Media Player, and then try to update your licenses again.




I'm not sure how to do that.

It's worth mentioning that I have Windows Media Player 11... there is no license management tool in the tools section.

I'm not sure what to do next.
