I just installed win xp pro on a pc that previously had Win ME. I loaded SP 2 and everything was working ok. I done all the updating as normal.
When i go to open windows media player, it goes so far, and then a error comes up saying that there was a problem with the download. and try and download it again.
i have tried this, but to no avcail. the pc is a dell dimension 4300.

Could you explain in more detail when you get this error?

When i click to open windows media player for the first time, i get a welcome screen.
I then click next. the next screen is a privacy options page. i again click next.
The following screen is the instalation options. I click finsih.
This is where i get the following error message. "windows media player is not installed properly and must be reinstalled. Do you wish to install player from microsoft website". Yes or no. I have tried to download from the website. but the same thing happens.
