An Internal Application Error Has Occured

by flistr8 / November 30, 2004 3:10 AM PST

Greetings All

This happy admonition greets me now as I try to access Window Media Player 9. I recently had to reinstall WinXP Home Edition after a crash relating to .dll. The program now boots up much slower than before although everthing seems to be fuctioning ok except WMP. I tried to download WMP10 but during the install process I get the same error msg.

Using a Dell Dimension 4600 P-4 2.66GHz 512MB SDRAM

Any ideas on how to correct WMP error msg and/or reasons for the slow boot?

Many Thanks.

Without the error message or the content of the admonition, it will be difficult to proceed.

Share this and you might find some vicissitudes of response.

Please accept my profligate apology...

The following msg arrives on-screen accompanied by a tone as soon as I click on Window Media Player from the Start>Programs menu:

Windows Media Player (in a blue banner) then

! An internal application error has occured.


That's it specifically. I also get this msg if I try to play a downloaded video from the web.

May the winds of intelligent discussion ever prevail (as least in this case)

Best Regards.

One last clue. The web site that caused it would be helpful.

There are issues surrounding CODECs that may be required. http://www.moviecodec.ocm lists most known CODECs but I'd install the DIVX codec and try one more time.

If it fails, the URL of the video site would help others see what coding the video is in.

Other issues can be that the video, audio or even motherboard drivers are out of date.

I get the same response - minus the tone!
I so seldom ever use it - I haven't a clue what happened. Made no changes to it

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
