Media Player will not Load / Media Player and SP2 Issues

    I have just upgraded to Service Pack 2.

    Since the upgrade i have noticed that Mediaplayer does
    not work. When opened media player starts by displaying a
    screen that gives you the impression its about to instal
    but nothing happens.

    I already had WMP9 installed before i upgraded to SP2.
    According to MS this appears to be a known issue but i
    cannot find a fix.

    Because there is nothing to install it just stays on the
    screen that you get when you first install.
    --------------------------------------------------------

    I have posted this before and i had one suggestion:

    Load Media Player 10.

    I have downloaded the 12 meg file to do this but on the
    opening screen you are once again barred from accepting
    the user licence meaning i cannot go any further.

    Any help on this would be appreciated.

    I use XP Pro and my machine ran like a dream until i
    installed SP2. I have noticed a slow down in performance
    since i have installed but i have yet to check for
    updated drivers on my hardware.

    I have similar problem. WMP10 was working with SP1 but not with SP2.

    I just looked down the list of "known" Microsoft products that sp2 screws up
    and didn't see MP ( 9 or 10 ).

    I may understand MP 10 being at odds with sp2 because it's a post sp2
    released item and there is no guarantee the MP crew made it to work with
    sp2.

    MP 9 should work since it's an include in sp2.

    A Microsoft product screws up a Microsoft product. Ya gotta just love it!

    You can't reload MP9 once you have this problem.
