I succeeded to enhance many functions on Windows Media Player 10 for Windows 2000.
I released Windows Media Player 10 for Windows 2000 build 4063e.
Thanks, I'll give it a try!
Just as a matter of interest, why are you concentrating on WMP 10 rather that WMP 11?
Is there something different in WMP 11 which makes Windows 2000 compatibility imposssible?
I only ask because WMP 11 is now the most up-to-date version.
Just tried your new WMP 10 out, and it does work much better than the first version I tried!
The "Portable Media Devices" icon in the Windows Control Panel now works, but only if your kernel32.dll is installed in the system32 folder. I had to do that to install WMP 10, but I have now removed it because if you remember I can't use my AVS Video Converter unless I put the normal file back, and I use that all the time.
WMP 10 then won't run.
Using a kernel32.dll EzInstall into the WMP folder gets it back again, but the "Portable Media Devices" icon then doesn't work any more. Not actually a problem for me in fact as I don't have any portable devices to use with it!
The other thing that doesn't work without your kernel32.dll in the system32 folder is the mini control panel that appears in the taskbar when WMP is minimised. The toolbar appears, but there are no controls in it.
That is a shame, as it's a cool feature.
