Can't find Windows Media Player on Windows 7 home premium.

    Question

  • I have two folders for Windows Media Player but they're both empty!  I have no "media center" files either.

    I've read that you can't install WMP without reinstalling Windows 7.  I can't believe that MS could be that wiley.

    Does anyone know how I can install WMP 12?

  • Hi,

     

    Please check Media Features is turned on:

    1 Click “Start”

    2 Input “Programs and Features” in Search box and press Enter

    3 Click “Turn Windows features on or off” on the left pane

    4 Select “Media Features” and choose all the option below

    5 Click “OK”

     

    If WMP failed to install, you can perform an in-place upgrade to fix your system:

    Hope that helps.

  • Leo,

    I tried this and it didn't work. My WMP won't work either. When I stried those steps, it says that there was an error and not all of the processes were sucessfully completed.

    I tried to download WMP 12 from microsoft but when download it keeps saying that the version is not for me even know I know I'm downloading the correct 64 bit version.

  • mash2531: please check if there are any error events after you have tried to install WMP. Open the Start menu, type event in the Search box, and click Event Viewer. In Event Viewer, go to Windows LogsApplication, and look for new Error events in that list. Double-click these events and copy/paste their description into your reply.
