Comment on How to Uninstall and Re-Install Windows Media Player 12 (WMP12) in Windows 7 by BlogZilla Operating Systems Jan 12, 2010 My Digital Life Editorial Team 34 Comments How to Uninstall and Re-Install Windows Media Player 12 (WMP12) in Windows 7 Windows Media Player 12 (WMP12) is the default and factory-installed media player that comes with Windows 7, and WMP12 does not have standalone setup installer available for free download. As such, Windows 7 users cannot uninstall and install Windows Media Player 12 manually. In fact, there is no entry of WMP12 in “Programs and Features” that allows uninstallation or removal. There is chance that user may need to uninstall, remove and then re-install Windows Media Player 12, such as to fix WMP corruption (possibly due to attempt to downgrade or convert WMP12 to WMP11), or to reset and re-configure Windows Media Player. For WMP 12 in Windows 7, here’s the steps to uninstall or re-install Windows Media Player and Windows Media Center (which will be removed if WMP is removed as it relies on WMP). Click on Start button, and open Control Panel -> Programs -> Programs and Features. Click on Turn Windows features on or off in the left pane. Expand Media Features. Uncheck (untick) check box for Windows Media Player. Click Yes to continue when prompted with dialog box saying: The following Windows features will also be turned off because they are dependent on Windows Media Player. Do you want to continue? Windows Media Center Other Windows features and programs installed on your computer might also be affected, including default settings. Click OK to remove WMP and WMC, and quit. Restart computer. To re-install Windows Media Player and/or Windows Media Center again, follow these steps: Open Turn Windows features on or off again. Check (tick) the checkbox for Windows Media Player and/or Windows Media Center. Restart computer. Windows Media Player 12 will be reinstate and reset. Launch Windows Media Player, and re-initialize the program. Tip: If for some reason the re-installation of WMP and WMC is not clean, once uninstalled, try go to %ProgramFiles% (and %ProgramFiles(x86)% for 64-bit OS) folder, and delete the Windows Media Player folder.

Sue Most of my music disappeared, photos wont open or videos. certain songs wont play what a useless piece of crap this is. When I had music to play and burnt a cd all sorts of music I hadn’t put in the list were burnt. Haven’t been able to burn a cd for yonks, totally useless. When I had xp I could do anything it was fabulous. Tylar Anne Solution worked great, thanks! insane_sob Clean installing of windows media player is not that simple since to completely uninstall Windows Media player, one has to remove several other related files (registry and mapping files, core files etc.) which require access from the outside (boot from another OS). Anyhow, easily removable Windows Media Player files are located in the following paths (for Windows 7): SystemDrive%\ -> Program Files -> Windows Media Player SystemDrive%\ -> Program Files (x86) -> Windows Media Player Good thing to remove user-related data collected by Windows Media Player, all of which reside in the folders : SystemDrive%\ -> Users -> *your_user_folder* -> AppData -> Local -> Windows Media Player SystemDrive%\ -> Users -> *your_user_folder* -> AppData -> Locallow -> Windows Media Player SystemDrive%\ -> Users -> *your_user_folder* -> AppData -> Roaming -> Windows Media Player gehg I uninstalled and reinstalled, but it did not fix the problem. what now Alex It would be nice if the person that wrote this post would respond to some of these replies so that we may get a better solution to what the problem is instead of posting and running as so many others do.

BlogZilla You should be specific about what the author suggested that didn’t fix the problem for you. The procedures he suggests only does a hard reset of Windows Media Player, and nothing else. rsanches I tried to do the steps as you posted, altough it did re-install WMP and WMC, the WMP does not open!!
