I am running Windows 7, Home Premium x64. A while back my Windows Media Player went sideways on me and quit working. I began getting a message box which read, "Windows Media Player is not installed properly and must be reinstalled. Do you want to install the Player from the Microsoft Web site?"
Clicking the "Yes" button takes me to an MS website which gives the useless message which apologizes profusely for its singular lack of helpfulness and gleefully suggests I check for an update.
I have tried using the System Restore, to no avail. I have turned all Windows media off, rebooted, turned it back on, rebooted - nothing. The install disk I have for Win7 (the upgrade disk) does not give me the opportunity to repair anything.
Poking around in various logs with the Event Viewer doesn't show me anything.
So now I'm screwed.
So how does one repair the WMP 12 installation?
