Hi ozzy 123,

I don't use vista myself so this may or may not work.

The exe file for media player is wmplayer.exe (well it is dor MP10, I assume MP11 will be the same) run a search for it and find it's location once located you should be able to pin to the start menu from there or at least copy it to your desktop and from there it should pin to the start menu.
