Thank you for using Microsoft Windows Vista Forums. 


Windows Media Player 12 definitely comes with lighter and brighter user interface as well as several new features having built-in support for many popular audio and video formats. Unfortunately, Windows Media Player 12 is currently not available for download, for Vista.  

Windows media player 12 will be offered through the Windows updates once it is available for Windows Vista.
