[h=2]Hello, all of a sudden my media player will not work anymore and when I tried to look for it to uninstall it I can't find it. so I go to download it again and I get the following message:

Windows Media Player is not compatible with your system.[/h]You are running Windows 7 32-bit. Although Windows Media Player will not run on your system, you can download Windows Media Player for other operating systems.
Which version would you like to download?

  • Windows Media Player 11 for Windows XP
  • Windows Media Player 11 for Windows XP (64-bit)

What the heck is going on, media player has allways played on this pc from the start!

1. Windows Media Player 12 comes with your Win 7 OS. It is part of the operating system. It cannot be uninstalled.
2. You were trying to download Windows Media Player 11 version. That is why you failed.

Suggestions :
1. Try to access wmp.exe this way and see if it will run....
Start button > in the search box, type wmplayer.exe > press Enter.
Will wmp open up and play ?

2. While you are struggling with the default wmp 12, consider installing a free program called VLC.
It plays almost all type of video/audio formats.
