How to install media player 9 Codecs to play a video

original title: media player 9 Codecs issue

 

Hi,

I am trying to run a movie on my office computer which has Windows XP loaded into it.It has Windows Media Player 9 installed into it. When I am trying to run the movie, it does not run on it.I do not want to use the VLC player. Also, when i tried installing the Windows Media Player 10, then it quit the installation giving me error that the Player version is not compatible with the current version of Windows. So some how I need the codecs which can play the movie in my Windows Media Player 9.

Please provide help.

Thanks

I doubt it is a codec.  codecs play certain kinds of media, you are having problems with the player itself.

i would either re-install XP (and all the apps) or update to win 7.

Ya, i know its a codec issue as the movie plays very well in my laptop which has Windows 7 ans window media player 12. But since it is an office system and is used in showing paradigm for fMRI , i cannot upgrade it to windows 7. I need to set up my movie on this system and with this settings only. Thanks for the suggestion but any other help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
