Windows Media Player 11 on XP Media Center 2002?

  A-Nonymous 13:12 17 Jun 2007

Ever since WMP11 came out I have been searching the web to see if there is any way whatsoever to get Windows Media Player 11 to run on XP MC2002. I heard from a friend that I can do a registry change. Any ideas on that, or any ideas on getting WMP11 to work on XPMC2002?

All help appreciated.

The problem with this is that I have tried installing Update Rollup 2 and it wont let me because you get half way through setup and it tells you setup cannot continue. This is probably because Update Rollup 2 is for WMC2005 not 2002. Thanks for your help though, any other ideas?

I have done a very thorough google, and there seems to be trace of a registry hack to change this specifically, but i did find this click here on the msdn website, which shows which registry key identifys the version of media center you are useing. It might be worth a try. hope it helps tobyb
