Windows Media Player 12 using Windows 7 Ultimate


  • Hello, I just upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate and am now using WMP version 12.  I've noticed that when I drag an mp3 file from MP3 Rocket program, I don't see a file displayed after dragging it into the WMP library.  There's also no "recently added" option, no "help" tab either.   Why is this happening?

  • 1. Control Panel -- Administrative Tools -- Services. Find the Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service, open it, click on Stop to stop the service.


    2. Close Windows Media Player 12 if it is started.


    3. input %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Media Player\ to Windows Explorer to find the folder.


    4. Move all files in the folder to another place as a backup.


    Note: Move files in the specific folder will reset database.


    5. Restart Windows Media Player to see if we can add files to Library now.
