Problems installing mediaplayer9

  NewestRoyWidd1 00:06 02 Aug 2006

Hello,due to instability following a reformat,I uninstalled WMP9,since then I've tried to reinstall it from Microsoft's downloads page.
It gets so far,then a message box appears telling me the updates can't be retrieved.Does anyone know of a stand-alone installer for WMP9 please?
I've tried with the same result,and I much prefer the player to others.I'm on 98se which could limit the options.
Thanks in advance.

Why not get WMP10 as thats the latest.

Alternatively try media player classic

Much better than WMP is anyday!

"I'm on 98se which could limit the options" - unfortunately WMP 10 is only for Win 2000 & above I think.

Direct link to MPC click here. G

Sorry for the delay in replying,I'm at work and got sidetracked.
Does player classic have the same controls for brightness etc as WMP?I'll check for replies later today.
Meanwhile,thank you Creature of the Nite,and Crossbow7.

Problem solved,I downloaded the k-lite codec pack from click here and found BS Player in there.
This does all that I need,so I won't look for WMP9 now.Once again,many thanks for your help.
