Slipstreaming Windows Media Player 10


 Share

Recommended Posts


can you please put back the manual 10-step instructions into the first post so we non-english users can also slipstream wmp10?

Or you can use my WMP10 slipstreamer... It's based on this post, it does exactly what was in the manual, but then automated... You can get it here.

@war59312: What's the difference? :rolleyes::lol:

But yeah I am trying his batch file right now.

So far so good and windows setup is now copying files to the hard disk. Hope all goes well.

Windows Media Player is not installed properly and must be reinstalled.

Did not change registry so thats not it either.

@war59312 what did you do?

Well been playing around a little more and this simply does the trick for me. :) Was having other problems but turns out to be my fault. ;)

Anyways, I highly recommend doing this in VPC first without installing wmp at all. That is just sp2.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\MediaPlayer]

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MediaPlayer]

Important that as a registry key or just delete the keys of course. ;)

Then install WMP 10.

Make sure u download this one:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...&DisplayLang=en

It appears there are different files even on microsoft.com atm. So make sure u get that one.

Now after installing check to see if it finds an update. It should not a new install. Anyways then backup those same two keys above.

Save it as one reg file and add those two lines above too it as well so it first deletes the registry keys first before importing. This is to insure everything goes as plan. No left over keys. If u dont do this you will notice there will be left over 9.0 entries which you dont want.

Matter of fact if u have 9.0 entries in your current setup trying deleteing them and see what happens.

Well use BST's batch file and let it do its thing.

And copy of course to your i386 folder.

Now important the registry key you made for wmp via cmdlines like such:

[COMMANDS]

"REGEDIT /S MediaPlayer.reg"

Then it should work ok.

Before I was just important my settings via reg file but I was not deleteing the old ones first and there where left over entires which was causing it to break completely.

Well that and I was accidently deleting:

%userprofile%\Application Data\Microsoft\Media Player

Take Care,

Will

Im back from the dead everyone! It seems like no one managed to get my setup working still. I found out that my method of slipstreaming left some err... "traces" of WMP9, even when done correctly. The best way for me to slipstream it is if i had a copy of MCE2005, which i dont, so i can take a look at wmp.inf. if you have a copy of it, please let me..."borrow" it. :)
