WinXP Home - WMP latest.
I downloaded a .wmv file to my desktop and clicked it to play it, but Windows said it couldn't play it!
I right clicked it and selected Play with > WMP and it played. What's going on?

Go to start/control panel/folder options/file types and scroll down to see if you have an entry for WMV, it should point to WMplayer, if not create an association by clicking 'new' and follow the prompts.
