    Hello, when I activate WMP in Windows 10 there comes a message that WMP is not proper installed and that I need to reinstall it, BUT HOW
    I can not find a place to download it from,
    it worked fine before the last official Windows update,
    I should mention that I have WMP Tag Plus and K-Lite Mega Codec Pack installed.

    That's not good. If you don't have a recent backup where WMP was working okay, then I'd reinstall Windows.

    Windows Media Player is one of the features that I remove after installing Windows 10.

    Install VLC Media Player 3.0.3 - which is a better media player and doesn't need a codec pack. (y)

    Note: Install a version2. I have read lots of posts that v 3 doesn't work properly. Save yourself a headache and avoid v 3 until the bugs have been fixed.

    I told a few people to replace v3 with v2 and then VLC worked properly.

    VLC Media Player 3.0.3 works fine for me with playing music and video clips in Windows 10 Version 1803.
