What did they have you do?
What is your support incident number?
*You* could not have fixed the problem of *that* version of the player not
being able to install on your system. Removing SP1 would not have removed
the servicing stack update that disables the old trigger package install
mechanism that *that* version of the player install package used. (Probably
too much or too little information, but -- that's how it works.)
That being said, go redownload the player install package now and it should
work. You happened to be in a timing window whereby the revised player
package with the SP1-servicing-stack-updated trigger package wasn't
available: it's there now and I actually used it myself in a test yesterday.
(The trigger package referred to here is the package that the XP player
installer installs to a Vista N system to Trigger the system to let it know
it should install the Media Restore Pack. Without that you would be unable
to relatively automatically get the Media Restore Pack.)
Speaking for myself only.
for some helpful WMP info.
