what version of media player did you have?

you can try going into add/remove programs in the control panel. make sure the checkboxl for "show updates" is checked. look for media player and uninstall it.

Try Media Player 10 from here

Choose save to disc in case it will not install first go, and system restore needs to be on

(this post is for any folks in the future that may experience this issue)

From either your WinXP CD or C:\Windows\ServicePackFiles\i386, copy wmploc.dll to C:\Windows\System32 and try running the installer again.

Be well, SD
