WMP 11 problems
Posted 30 December 2012 - 01:59 PM
few months ago I slipstreamed IE 8 and WMP 11 onto XP SP3 cd
but now I have problems that WMP won't launch itself to play any music or video when double click on file
instead it always launches Open with dialog
no matter if i set via Open with "always open with wmp", or via control panel -> add remove -> set programs access & defaults
it always doesn't react
what should I do to make it work normal ?

OR you've installed another player that "reset" the relationships. Fix them in Tools->Options (right-click to the right of "Media Guide" to see a pull-down).

edit - It almost sound like you completely LOST the basic definitions of FileTypes from the Registry.
First post - "a few mo. ago I slipstreamed"
Prev Post - "fresh install" <-first time? did WMP EVER work in this?
You slipstreamed wrong, betcha!

edit - you'll also NOW notice that any WMP Hotfixes will (OMG) reappear in WU because of the fubar-ed nLite. Those Hotfixes are Mult-Version (v9, v10, v11) and nLite gets REAL confused, thus NOT giving the CORRECT files.
These are the WMP11 Hotfixes to be applied via Slipstreamer (or maybe after JUST WMP11 via Slipstreamer - haven't tried that way):
wmp11-windowsxp-x86-enu.exe /Q:A /R:N /C:"setup_wm.exe /Q:A /R:N" REM The following is no longer needed - it predates newer MP11 REM WindowsXP-WindowsMedia-KB952069-v2-x86-ENU.exe /quiet /norestart WindowsXP-WindowsMedia-KB954155-x86-ENU.exe /quiet /norestart WindowsXP-WindowsMedia-KB973540-x86-ENU.exe /quiet /norestart WindowsXP-WindowsMedia-KB975558-x86-ENU.exe /quiet /norestart WindowsXP-WindowsMedia-KB978695-x86-ENU.exe /quiet /norestart WindowsXP-WindowsMedia-KB2378111-x86-ENU.exe /quiet /norestartNote: above is a CMD file for installing all of it.

Not true, that's not the only way. Onepiece - http://www.ryanvm.ne...opic.php?t=6442, and YumeYao - http://www.ryanvm.ne...opic.php?t=7030 both offer alternative solutions to boooggys. (You do know that he is no longer updating that, right?)
Cheers and Regards

Yes, I know that.
The List I gave above is for a Direct Run after Install. If you DON'T Integrate the above Fixes and install JUST MP11, the remainder show up in WU, hence why I said what I said.
side note - IF you run the IE8 / WMP11 after First Run, then you MUST reboot to add any REG entries. I went nuts with this and this is why I chose the non-Integrate method. IE8 CAN be Integrated Directly via nLite, WMP11 CAN be directly integrate (using your links) via nLite, but it can be integrated as my post suggests without an Add-On.
So.... for WMP11 - choose one of several methods but NOT Direct via nLite only - won't work for the aforementioned reason.

When boooggy's tool is installed, nLite can call it directly to slipstream the WMP11 installer.
nLite only slipstreams the latest file versions in the packages. After nLite calls boooggy's tool, nLite uses the correct WMP11 files as intended.

See post #2 on how I used to do it, with good results (a bit off-topic here). wmfdist11.exe integrates normally into nLite.
