windows media player

Hi! My windows media player 12 keeps crashing on windows 8.1. It crashes even if I just open it without playing any files. I have tried turn windows features off and on and several other things but with no joy.Does anyone know a fix for this.

Sounds harsh but

dump it and use VLC player or another media player instead

I have to agree with Fruit Bat - I ditched WMP years ago in favour of VLC and have had no regrets. WMP is too temperamental for my liking.

If you want to persist with WMP I came across this fix on another forum.

Open WMP - Organize - Manage Libraries-Pictures

Remove the folder shown under Pictures.

Youhave to be quick doing this because as soon as you start WMP it tries to update libraries
