Aquiring Media Player 11

  nagonlouse 19:25 31 Jul 2007

Since my computer crash about a fortnight ago i`m reinstalling the things that did not get backed up, one of them is Media Player 11. The reinstall disk has put MP 10 back but I would like 11 please. I get as far as opening the download file and it tells me to (get update Roll Up 2 for Windows XP Media centre edition 2005 before installing WMP 11. Any help please would be appreciated. As you can tell I`m running Windows XP Media centre Edition.

The roll up for Media Centre is part of the optional windows updates.

mfletch Yes I`ve been all through that and had 77 updates to download and the very last one Roll up 2 after numerous attempts said failed. Will try your other suggestions though, Thanks.
