I have MP6.4 and have managed to duplicate this. No error message, it just does nothing? Is that correct?

Because we have different MP's I am not going to give you a registry key. Instead I am going to ask you to go into your registry, and look for this key:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{22D6F312-B0F6-11D0-94AB-0080C74C7E95}

Is it there? If so , click the + sign in front of it and please look for this subkey:
InprocServer32

Is it there? And if it is, look in the right hand pane for the default value. It should read:
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\MSDXM.OCX

Is that there?

Post back.

Let's try registering this file. msdxm.ocx
Go to start>run. Copy and paste this in:
regsvr32 msdxm.ocx
Press enter.
See if you can start Media Player now.

Dear Mosiac1,

mmstam,
You're welcome. It's a mystery to me too.
The only other thing I can think of off the top of my head is a registry restriction or policy not allowing Media Player to start. However, I know of no such restriction in existence.

When you uninstalled version 7, 6.4 should have been there an ready to take its place. Did you try to open it? If so, did it work?
I will look around more to try and find any more information. In fact, if I remember correctly, in the "OPEN WITH" box, even with 7 installed, you still have the choice to open with the older version of Medial Player. I did that a while back when I still had Version 7.1 installed. Right click on a file whild holding the shift button down and then scroll to the MPlayer2 entry ( I think that's the one) Be sure the alwasy open with box on the bottom of the page is not checked. Then open the Wav or MP3 or whatever in the older MP. Does it play?

EDIT: One other thing to try would be an Internet Explorer Repair. A lot of the IE files are used by other programs too.

Dear Mosaic1,
Thank you again. Yes you'r right mplayer2 does work, but wmplayer7.1 is the default player. When I insert a cdrom it just won't come on automaticaly,or even by clicking on it's icon. Let me try with an Internet Explorer Repair. How do I go about.
