My cousin has been having problems installing Windows Media Player for the past 5 months or so, but he's just ignored it. Now he is fed up and came to me for help, but I could do nothing.
Anytime he tries to install Windows Media Player onto his computer he gets an error that reads: "The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0150004)". He's running a legitimate version of Windows XP Home edition. He has completely removed Windows but the folders keep coming back (not the program...just the Media Player folder). Anyone out there that can help?
