As a Beta, WMP11 is bound to have issues now and then which may only be fixable through a patch/update from Microsoft. However, here are two things I'd try:

1.) Go Start->Run and type in regsvr32 wmp.dll (with the space). A moment later you should receive the notice "DllRegisterServer in wmp.dll succeeded." Restart your computer and see if the issue is resolved.

2.) Try reinstalling WMP11 using the original installer from should replace and re-register all associated files and registry entries.

Hope this helps,

Or a 3rd alt to WMP 11 Beta...

Just uninstall it and it will go back to WMP10. Darrell

1. It's a beta.

2. Microsoft has shown no desire to play "unauthorised content." No I am not referring to pirated material but video encoded in DIVX or other. Microsoft has been noted to call such "rogue codecs" and may repeat the behaviour we saw with WMP 7, 8, 9 and 10...

So far I'll call this as I see it from the gang that couldn't shoot straight.

Two more rounds left. Let's see what else is noted.

Why people just have to download and install something new. Especially when the previous version was so buggy (10). And then ask for help.

Sorry, don't mean to be condescending, but. . .

Doctor, it hurts when I do this.

"Don't do that."

I think this advice applies here too.

And it happens every day. 'Course, if that didn't happen, we wouldn't be needed.
