I installed WMLite and it didnt work, it seemed to just install codecs I already had anyways but its alright. I would like to know why this NKSU Media Restore Pack will not install. Looks like everything would be fine if that would just install but I guess it all goes back to my install having no WMP integration or codecs.1 Thanks for the help though guys. 1 Found out that N SKU Media Restore Pack is for the "Vista N" versions (Academic or Euro versions I guess) that do not come with WMP at all, and this was Microsoft's fix for that. I'm guessing this wont install because it sees that I have Vista Ultimate wich would not need the restore pack, but it is also seeing that I don't have any kind of Windows Media Player software installed, so I get the option to download this fix. Now I'm debating on remaking a Vista CD with WMP/codecs just because I'm semi-perfectionist and I would like for my OS to be in prime running condition. (Plus vLite is just fun to use ;] ) EDIT: Ripped my Vista ultimate to ISO (on a friends PC who actually has a DVD drive) transfered ISO to my PC, mounted ISO, clicked "Upgrade" and it installed all 3GB of its bloatness :] Atleast I have WMP now though without reformat. Hope this will be of some help to people.
