Windows Media Player install problem

Recommended Posts

I'm having difficulty installing WMP 7.1 or 9 on a Win98Lite system running Firefox 1.5

The install begins ok, then I get a message from the 'Windows Media Configuration Manager':

"The Windows Media Update Notifier is currently unable to detect available updates. Please try again later".

Then the install abruptly finishes. Same whether I'm on- or off-line.

I checked the command-line switches, but there doesn't seem to be a 'no upgrade' option.

I'm now wondering if WMP 7.1/ 9 requires IE to be installed ? Is there a workaround ?

Ta. Colin

(Same story if I try to install the WMP 6.4 codec pack to my existing WMP 6.4 ...)
