Running MP9 on Windows 98SE. When I click on the icon to open it, I get the message, "Unspecified XML Parse Error" Clicking on More Information goes to a help topic, OC00D1197, Cannot play the file", although I have not tried to play a file, only open the application. After that, I get a message box, "Windows Media Player ! An internal application has occurred." When I click on OK, the next box is, "WMplayer !This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down. If problem persists . . ."

Supplemental information:

1. I experienced a crash a few months ago that resulted in having to "go back" in time to get it on again. Everything else seems to work fine.

2. I have uninstalled MP9 and downloaded and installed a new version without positive effect.

3. I have thought that perhaps something in the OS itself was corrupted and should be reinstalled.

If I put the CD with the Win 98SE installation in the drive, will it offer the opportunity to repair, or will it make a completely new installation?

4. Along that line of reasoning, I have tried to update the OS on the Microsoft web site, but I can't seem to get to the page that has the update information.

If any of these suggestions suggest a particular problem and solution to any of you knowledgeable folks, I'd be most grateful to hear what it is.

Many thanks.

Bob
