    I have a great computer at work but I do not have Windows Media Player 9. Is there anyway that anyone knows that I can install Windows Media Player 9 or even just the Windows Media Video 9 codec to Media Player 6.4 without being an admin .. any help would be appreciated.

    P.S. ... I don't want to hack the admin account or anything like that so please nothing of that nature. If thats what it takes I just wont do it. Just want to be able to view videos on LaunchCast since I work the overnight shifts and things are always really slow. Thanks.

    The computer is using windows 2000

    That was my intent. :)

    Getting around the restrictions in any way is subverting the employer's policies. Is it really worth risking your job over it? [​IMG]
