Windows Media question:

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.video (More info?)

Hi,

I posted this on the Windows Media Player forum some time ago, ... but no
reply(s) from anyone ... so hope I can get some thoughts here; thanks!

well this is curious, .. I have WMP ver. 10.00.00.3646 on my XP home
computer. When I had version 9.xxx not too long ago, the video software I am
using permitted me to save video files as xx.wmp .. or whatever it was called
.... the issue now, however is, it keeps asking me to download WMP version
9.xxx

However, I'm presently using the vesion 10.xxx I mentioned above. And I can't
even get version 9 now.

The video software folks (Arcsoft Showbiz) don't have any info on their
websites that address this.

Any thoughts or recomendations would be greatly acknowledged.

Thanks,

--
Michael

    Since you cant install WMP9 series over WMP10,i would think that thier
    software doesnt recognize WMP10 in some aspects,meaning its outdated.Not
    much one can do until they update.

    I don't know why you can't go back to 9.
    V.9 is still out there on their website and you should be able to remove 10
    via Add/Remove and clicking on Add/Remove Windows components and then
    deselecting Media player. Then re-install 9.
    The link to 9 is:

    This is a bug in their software detection logic. Please ask their support
    to check the first full integer value, not just the first character of the
    returned version. They're presumably seeing "10.0.0.0" and checking *1*
    instead of checking *10*. =\
