Media Player 9


Recommended Posts

Can anyone help me figure out why this is happening.

When it comes to the media plaer installation of my batch_file, I get the error message that is attached.

The command line I use is

start /wait %cdrom%\Applications\WMP9\MPSetupXP.exe /Q:A /R:N

Everyhting else seems to install without any problems.

why not just use the unattended media player 9 installation? There is a stand-alone Media Player 9 unattend install, or there is a Media Player 9 and Movie Maker 2 bundle package...

then you don't need any switches.... and install it via svcpack.inf ?

it is WMP9 and MM2, and perhaps he's content with just WMP9 :)

besides all the OPK version does, is bundle both installers into one package and then use the same commands we would to install them.

In my batch, when I run the above command, it gives me an error "too many command- line parameters"

Any reason why I would get that? Obviously I'm doing it wrong, but I copied and pasted from the 2 posts above and doesn't seem to work for me.

Yo everyone,

tis eZ my first post, anyway i read all threads on windows media player 9 that i could find on this website....and i still haven't found a working solution.

Now i.am new at this kind of thing but i have learned a lot of information from reading on this site. (**** Good Too :D . But i still can't get windows media player to work correctly. I get the "system restore error". and it won't contiune installing anything until i click "yes". I went to the website,


i read the info there but i still can't get it right :)

all i want to do is be able to siently install wmp9 and have the following with it preconfiged; if possible...

- Accepted Privacy Statement

- Set WMPAs Default

- system restore continue even if it's off

all of this done without being prompted for a answer. :D

and if possible being able to have wmp9 already fully cofigured,


size, visalations, skin and etc. already set at where i want them. this way the user doesn't have to config anything. (Again, if possible). i'am willing to do the extra work.

what i'am doing wrong?

my prsent settings...

Thanks that does work.

when i do it right! :)

thanks for the tip :D

what about having windows media player already configered?

i'am going to export my reg settings into a *.reg file, and then add them in the command prompt. i'll see what happens. I am sure itl work, but i wonder if's a per user setting, and if will work under different User varibles on another computer. like C: D: E: etc.... :rolleyes:

what up pee pole...

RUN regedit and navigate to:




export "MediaPlayer" & "Microsoft", the whole folder string into a WMP9_Settings.reg file.

Use the RunOnceEx.cmd to install the *.reg file durring setup... and presto when you run Windows Media Player 9, everything will be set to your hearts content!!!

the best thing to do is go through all the availble settings in windows media player 9 and configure them the way you want, then export them into a *.reg file. all your settings will now be saved!

NOTE: I noticed if you have mulitiple users accounts, it will still promp the user for the lisce agrement, and the file assocation defaults. but after you continue that part, all settings will be as you configured them.

run your saved *.reg file using the "RunOnceEx" method. along with the "cmdlines.txt".

don't forget to add this as well...

cmdlines.txt - this will add your settings to all user acounts:



"REGEDIT /S RegTweaksHKLM.reg"

"REGEDIT /S RegTweaksHKCU.reg"



Happy Micro$oft CrAckin' :)
