I am trying to upgrade from wmp9 to wmp11. After I click on the download now botton from the Microsoft website, the installer window pops up and then I click on the open button. When I do that I get this warning saying " wmp11-windowsxp-x86-enu- [1].exe is not a valid win32 application". I talked to Dell and they said talk to Micosoft and they want to charge me $35.00. So, can you help before I antiup the money? Just to let you know I had to reboot WindowsXP. :thumbsup:

Your best bet would be to download the Media Player Classic from FREE Codecs http://www.free-codecs.com

It plays all of the WMP files, and it's much smaller, with less stuff being installed on your computer.

There are just too many alternatives out there that are safer and friendlier to install and use. But installing probably any MS product, or just updating, you're taken through too many security checks, which I'm sure it's the cause for many of the problems with people trying to download/update their software.

... or do you really mean reinstalling the os? :thumbsup:

It may be a pain to do, but at least you'll have a better working computer.
