Can't download WinMediaPlayer security DRM update

by BAD18 / March 30, 2013 4:24 AM PDT

I have been using Overdrive Media Console (OMC) to download library audio files for a long time. The OMC works with Win Media Player 12 on my desktop. I recently added a second hard drive to my desktop running Win 7 (64bit) and I lost the ability to download the Overdrive audio files.

I followed the Windows help instruction on how to upgrade the WMP security DRM file to 2.9.01. But nothing happened. Then I followed the instructions to go to Internet Explorer (as administrator) and follow the httP// link and the Security component upgrade button is grayed out. So that doesn't work. . The problem seems t be a Win Media Player issue and I've done a lot of reserach and tried varies fixes but nothing works.

Help will be appreciated.

It appears to be quite proprietary.

Looking at it appears you need to work with them. I know that's a terrible answer but when DRM fails, and it's proprietary like this, back to the maker.

I am also working with Overdrive. But no luck yet.
