'Windows Media Player - Internal Application Error

  Wes Tam ;-) 15:07 05 Jun 2003

I've searched this site and although there was a similar topic in April there was no indication of the resolution, so here goes.

I had to a system restore and now I can't open Windows Media Player 9 - I get an error message 'Windows Media Player - An Internal Application Error has occurred'.

I've downloaded WMP9 (for ME) again, but I get the same message.

I can't uninstall the player.

I've tried to go back to the restore point prior to upgrading to WMP9 but when it finishes I get a message "Your computer cannot be restored to (date/time). No changes have been made....".

I've search the MS Knowledge Base but found nothing.

I tried to make an on-line query to the MS techies but it gets blocked because my Windows ME has an OEM reference.

Anyone any ideas on what else I can try?

Gaz 25 thanks for the number. I haven't been ignoring you, just haven't had chance to ring yet.
I'll try Monday.

ps: Judging from the MS message board I'm not the only one with this problem, but none of the suggested remedies have worked thus far.

You can not uninstall Windows player nine it is important that you should have had a restore point before installing WM9 the only way of getting rid of it is a full OS reinstall.
Unless some IT wiz knows any other way.

Zach, who helped to write MP9, via the MS message board suggested various remedies that didn't work for me, and eventually sent me to a site he runs in his spare time (here for anyone who has a similar problem click here )from where I again downloaded MP9 and now .... it works OK!!!
