Media Player problems
Hi All,

I have installed a legit copy of Vista Business Edition and was under the
impression that it would ship with Media Player 11 but it isnt there.

If i try to play an mp3......it does not know what application to use and i
cant find any link or reference to an installed media player.

I tried to d/l MP11 from microsofts site and ran the install but it just
disappears half way through the install.

Any ideas or advice appreciated.

Regards
Andy

Re: Media Player problems
Two questions:

1. how is your copy of Vista Business Edition legit?

2. Is it the N version from EU that doesn't include WMP?

Two answers:

1. Its a copy that was supplied with a computer (one of many) that was
bought for my company. They all had Vista on them thanks.

2. Yes it is.........this was the answer i was looking for and you could
have got away with just that...............^

Thank you all the same
