Today I got trouble, playing windows media player 12 (Running on Windows 7). First I troubleshoot by installing and uninstalling windows media player. But unfortunately nothing works for me. Then I simply did the following thing to work like a charm…

I would like to confirm if WMP can load from C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player\wmplayer.
To further troubleshooting, please perform the following steps:

1. Close Windows Media Player.
2. Click the Start Button, type "%userprofile%\appdata\local\Microsoft\Windows Media" (without quotation marks) in the Search Box and press Enter.
3. In the open folder, right-click the folder 12.0 and choose Rename. Rename the folder to 12.0.bak.

2. Click Start, All Programs, Accessories
3. Right click "Command Prompt" and choose "Run as administrator", accept the UAC prompt.
4. Type the following commands and press Enter after each line.

regsvr32 vbscript.dll
Set WMP default
1. Click the Start Button, choose Default Program in the right pane.
2. Choose Set your default programs.
3. Click Windows Media Player in the Programs pane.
4. Click Set this program as default, and then click Choose default for this program.
If the issue persists, please try repairing the system as below:
