    Forgive my ignorance ... I don't see or I don't understand any remedy shown to my problem. Each time I launch Windows Media Player, it starts then gives me the message: Windows Media Player Has Stopped Working. Here's what I get in the error report:

    Hi, mmcraig, and welcome to the forums.

    I think you're missing an update somewhere - for example SP1....

    My version is 11.0.6001.7000....

    If you're hellbent on not installing SP1, then all I can suggest is to uninstall *all* codec packages that you might have installed, reboot into Safe Mode, then run SFC /SCANNOW, then reboot, then install Vista Codec Pack - 32bit & 64bit Media Player Codecs as you *only* codec package (note, there are two parts, the standard Vista Codec package, and the x64 components, which you install *after* VCP).

    JohnGalt,

    Thanks so much for your post. No, I don't think that I have updated my VISTA since purchasing the computer, so if there is a service pack there, I most likely do not have it. I'll try your suggestion and let you know if it cures my computer ills.

    Thanks again,
    mmcraig

    JohnGalt,

    I have now downloaded the serice pack, but it did nothing to resolve the issue I am having with Windows Media Player. Any other suggestions you might have will be greatly apprecaited.

    Thanks,

    OK, on the advice of another mod here, you need to figure out what version you are running - SP1 isn't the only thing that was released in terms of updates - is it matching my version number now?

    If so, then it sounds like you need a database reset - I'll try to get details on how to do that.

    Hi again JohnGalt,

    You are correct. I do not have same version as you. Mine is 11.0.6000.6344. I am now checking for further updates. However, every time I have tried to download from the Windows Media download page, I end up getting a message that I have a newer version installed on my computer and that I cannot replace a newer version with the older version. Thanks so very much for hanging with me on this problem. I would paste my properties screen from Windows Media Player here but frankly I don't know how to do it. Not very savvy on that type of thing.

    Thanks again,
    mmcraig

    Most versions of Vista include the snipping tool, and we have a great tutorial on it - How to Use the Snipping Tool in Vista

    Yes - run Windows media player, press the ALT key, then select Help --> About Windows Media Player to get the screen I posted. Then use the Snipping tool to grab an image of that one window (you can change the type of image grabbed in snipping tool using the drop down arrow beside the word New and then attach it here as you did before.
