this is an education for both of us. i never play with half the stuff we've been in.

i don't want to have a huge crash...LOL

so, i'm thinking the big difference in the above instructions is delete the WMP files in the X86 folder?

thanks again

if the above directions do not work, what do you think of this?

How-to-solve : C00D11B1 error when trying to play files in Windows Media Player 11 or MuvAudioA soundcard driver that you have installed on your system has an unsigned sAPO which, to work, creates a registry key. The key is then causing the C00D11B1 error when trying to play files in Windows Media Player 11 or MuvAudio. To fix the problem, please do the following (WARNING: at your own risk, as modifying the registry incorrectly can cause issues):
1. Click on the Start Menu.
2. Type regedit into the Start Search box and hit enter.
3. If asked for permission, click on Continue to open the Registry Editor
4. On the left-pane, navigate to the following: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, then SOFTWARE, then Microsoft, then Windows, then CurrentVersion, and finally, Audio.
5. In the right-pane, double click on the text, DisableProtectedAudioDG, and change the value from 1 to 0.
6. Close the Registry Editor.
7. Restart your computer

That will probably only be relevant to that soundcard, as that entry is not in my system
Could you locate that key.. Right click and select export
Save it to the desktop and then attach it in your next post

Ta as playing with the registry is fraught with danger if you are not 100% sure of what you are doing

Grrr one step forward three back :)

OK in my trawling around I have found a series of hotfixes for windows 7 SP1 that MS has only available on the catalogue website, weird
I installed them on my system and there were quite a few that I did not have
Here is the download page location
This is the one you need

Select Add
Go to the download basket (top right)
Select that and then press download
A folder will download (select desktop as location)
There will be two files in the folder run both
The smaller one will appear to do nothing, that is just a checker file and runs for a second or so and disappears
The second will take a bit longer and require a reboot


OK for WMP what type of file is it that will not open i.e. mp3, mp4, wmv etc
