Unable to open windows media player. When attempting to open windows media player 12 from the programs menu, I receive the following error message:

"C:\\Windows\System32\wmploc.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support."

The above message is followed by the following message:

"Windows Media Player is not installed properly and must be reinstalled. Do you want to install the player from the microsoft website?"

When attempting to open a media file, I receive the following:

"Windows Media Player is not installed properly and must be reinstalled. Do you want to install the player from the microsoft website?"

followed by another message stating:

"Filename-Server execution failed."

However, if I locate the windows media player folder, I can open the program directly from there without any problem whatsoever. I am also able to load media without a problem.

I have tried the following:

-Uninstalling and reinstalling wmp via the windows features
-using sfc scan
-Using the Cmd Prompt to enter the following:
unregmp2.exe /UpdateWMPVersion

None of the above have helped.

OS=Windows 7 64 Bit Version.
