I want to install Windows Media Player 9

Hi,

I had Windows Media Player v 9 installed in my old pc (which had Windows 2000 XP Pro 32-bit). At that time, I tried Windows Media Player 10 and didn't like it so I followed some procedures so that I could uninstall it and reinstall v 9.

I now have a new pc and I installed Windows XP Pro X64. Along with other programs, I transferred WMP v 9 from my old to my new pc. When I tried to install WMP 9, my new computer "won't let me" install it. It continuously opens the window to install WMP 10. Is there another way to install WMP 9 than just double clicking on the set-up icon? The features it has are much better than those on WMP 10, and I'm used to using it.

Can you right click on the WMP *.exe file and select the Compatiblity tab. See if you can run WMP 9 as an earlier type O/S.

For info on WMP 9 with new PCs:

WMP 9
System Requirements

Windows XP users: Windows Media Player 9 Series is no longer available for Windows XP. Download Windows Media Player 11.

The recommended os are Windows 98 Second Edition, Windows 2000, or Windows Millennium Edition. Since I have Windows XP Pro X64, it seems that it I won't be able to install it. :whistling:


I meet the other requirements though. Thanks for your help :blink:
