I did not find its entry in "Programs and Features / add or remove programs", hence I ended up deleting the "Windows Media Player" file manually from the "Program Files" folder and replacing it with another "Windows media Player" folder I had with me in a cd (higher version),
When I tried to execute wmplayer.exe, the following error message appeared "C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player\wmplayer.exe is not a valid Win32 application" and I cannot run it, I need help with this!!!
I also changed the wmploc.dll file to a new compatible one with the new "Windows Media Player"!
Can someone also tell me, what DLL files should be there in System32 regarding WMP, because some files were deleted (related to wmp) by my friend by mistake when she tried to solve this problem, cannot figure out which ones exactly !!!
In overall, I want to know what all to be removed completely off from my PC to remove any trace of my old WMP so that I can download a new WMP and install it freshly (also anything regarding the DLL files needed)!!!!
