WMP can handle DivX content where MCE's player might not.

Sorry for the short reply, there's little to work with here.

how can i reinstall MCE

In reply to: Could be proper. For instance, WMP can

I want to reinstall mce, but i donot know how to reinstall without getting caught having to reactivate. If i have to reactivate, how can i let microsoft know that the software is being installed on the same computer it was originally on?

A non-issue. Sorry but the clues here are far too sparse to say this will help.

I've reactivated on the same machine as often as needed. Why is your XP different?

I never tried, so i don't know if its different. I'll take your advice and install and then take it from there. Thank you.
