    Hey guys. My friend recently sent me a movie he downloaded from somewhere legally, and it's set up for WMP 9+. It has a passcode kind of thing apparently. I try to open it up, and WMP 9 says that it is not installed correctly. I've tried re-installing it, and it seems to work and it plays everything else just fine, but not this file. It definitely works on my friend's PC just fine.

    Anyways, any way to fix this? I'm using Windows XP. I can't upgrade to a later version of WMP because I can't verify Windows (long story, not the usual)! Any ideas?
