I am running Windows 98SE.
Having problems with media player 9 ,just wasnt working,freezing up ,could nt find audio files on my computer,so I uninstalled MP9 to rollback to 7.1.
Now I cannot find player 7.1. I tired reinstalling 7.1 and still ,cannot find it.
I then tried to re-install WMP 9,after I finished the download,I received a message..."Media Player is not installed properly. Do you want to install from web site" I checked yes and still received the same message,"Did not install properly. Any ideas?
Thanks

This will rebuild rather than restore the registry and also replace missing or corrupt system files

Boot the PC and keep tapping F8 right after the beep until you get options, select command prompt only, type scanreg.exe /fix then press enter, it will run through a few screens then say registry repaired. Press enter then press ctrl + alt + delete keys together to reboot.

When it has loaded, click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools, system information, tools then run system file checker and replace any files it asks for from the 98SE CD then reboot.

When it has loaded to the desktop, click start, programmes accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, then run disc defragmenter from system tools



That should go through in 20 minutes or so, and is to check everything is as it should be

Download 7.1 from here, save it to the drive, in case it does not install straight off

Thanks Keith for the response,but before I try to install the media player let me give you an update as to what was done. 1) Scanreg/fix worked fine 2) When using the SFC I had several files that I was told that they were changed and to verify update,I did so. 3) I restored several files from the windows CD...OK 4) The SFC showed several files that were said to be deleted and I needed to restore them,but they were not on my Windows CD,here is the list: Spoolsrv32.exe....SRDRV32.dll....SRVC32.dll...SRVC32.exe....TD489HD7M8.dll...TTYBHVKFIC.dll..WER1316.dll....All Windows\System files...CDR4VSD.VXD , windows\system\IOsubsys.....MSHY32.dll , programfiles\common\microsoftshared\proof.... _setup.dll , windows\temp\isp5022.tmp.....setup.dll ,win\temp\ispA2F5.tmp.....Objectpcs.dll , programs\common\installshield\professional\runtime.......Dsetup.dll ,windows\system\directX\websetup , INSENG.dll , windows \system\directX\websetup. The following file was said to be possibly corrupted....WPEQU532.dll , program\commonfiles\MSshared\textconv. If I need any of these files ,would you know where i can find them. Thanks again for your help,Ill wait for your response before I re-install the media player......Dan
