    See attached screen shot.

    For some reason it says I do nt have sufficient privlages? The "user" I am logged in as is set as an administrator so I dont understand why this is coming up?

    Windows 7 RC build 7100 x64bit

    Any ideas?

    You're trying to installl a 6 year old program for XP.

    It's simply not going to work on Windows 7.

    Even if you were running XP Mode, you cannot install an add-on when the original program (Windows Media Player) is open and running.

    a) well then perhaps Media player 12 should not be directing you to a website to download themes wich are not in fact compatible?
    b) perhaps the error message could be a little more helpful, and not so obscure?
    c) Sorry I should have mentioned that I tried it with WMP not running, I just took the screenshot with it open ... neither worked.

    opplevelse,

    I clicked on all the download links in WMP, but could not locate the themes.

    Could you tell me what you clicked on to be directed to the Winter Fun pack?
