What service pack of windows are you on?

You may need SP2, but deffinitely need SP1 to get Windows Media Player 10.

Instead downloading the media player on it's own, run windows update and download all the latest fixes.

I have updated everything as far as I know. I have service pack 2 installed. I have just again looked for possible updates but nothing available everything seems to be updated. There is an "old" version of mediaplayer 10 sitting on my computer but I can't get it going.

When I double click on wmplayer.exe in the (windows media folder) I get the following message

"This version of Windows Media Technologies is incompatible with this version of Windows. For more information, view the information at the Microsoft web site."

when I try to remove mediaplayer 10 using the "add or remove" option I get exactly the same message.

When you run Windows Updates go to 'custom' updates and once that's finished searching go to software updates using the panel on the left of the page and you should see Windows Media Player 10!
