Can't install WMP 11

I have before installed WMP 11, and then un-installed it because it could not find my whole libary.

I now want to re-install it but it fails everytime.

It does not give any error messages and just says to go to online help which hasn't helped me.

Does anybody know how I can re-install it?

Try a new download, maybe your old one became corrupted.

Did you follow the MS recommended method of uninstalling MP11, before trying to re-install it?

Windows Media Player is a feature of the Windows operating system and cannot be removed entirely. However, depending upon which version of the Player and Windows that you are using, you might be able to roll back to the version of the Player that was previously on your computer. The procedure varies depending upon which version of the Player you are running.

Windows Media Player 11

1.
In Category View of Control Panel, click Add or Remove Programs.

2.
Click Remove a program, and then, at the top of the list, select the Show updates check box.

3.
In the Windows Updates section, click Windows Media Player 11, and then click Change/Remove.

4.
If prompted, restart your computer, and then log on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group.

5.
In Control Panel, click Add or Remove Programs.

6.
In the Windows Updates section, click Windows Media Format 11 Runtime, and then click Change/Remove.

7.
If prompted, restart your computer, and then log on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group.

8.
In Control Panel, click Add or Remove Programs, and then click Remove a program.

9.
Click Microsoft User-Mode Driver Frameworks Feature Pack 1.0, and then click Change/Remove.


Note

If you remove Windows Media Player 11 and the Windows Media Format 11 Runtime, and you try to play a protected file, you may get an error message indicating that the Player cannot play, burn, or sync protected files. To resolve the problem, you can install the Windows Media Format 9.5 Runtime. For information about installing the Runtime, in the Microsoft Knowledge Base, see article 891122, "Update for Windows Media Digital Rights Management-enabled players."

Its not the download, I have tried several.

I didn't uninstall as suggested by MS.

Is it possible for me to do it properly now that I've got rid of it?

You could always try a System Restore to before you installed it.
