Hi jimbosum888,

I never had any problems with Windows Media Player, but it seems that an antivirus program or a firewall is blocking Windows Media Player.

If you have installed AntiVirus or an additional firewall, just disable and try to start the media player again.

  • Every thing opens windows media player

    I don't know what I did. I was down loading a disc photos. Don't know what I clicked but now all my desktop icons are all of the windows media player icon and when I go to system restore and you click on it it opens windows media player also.   help.........................

    Hello

    See if you can run the Windows System Restore as follows.

    Shut down the PC.  Tap away at f8 that you start the PC to enter the Windows Recovery Console.  Use the arrow keys to select Safe mode and press ENTER.  When it is loaded, click on the Menu start, open the all programs, open accessories, right-click on command prompt and select "run as Administrator".  Type in the following command and press ENTER.

    Rstrui.exe

    I hope that this will launch the system restore.  Choose a restore point at least 24 hours before the file association problem and then restore.  When you are finished, Windows will restart normally.

    Kind regards

    I clicked on "check online for a solution", but nothing came.

    I tried to install an earlier version, but was not allowed to do.

    How can I solve this problem.

    Hi Nick91606,

    KERNELBASE.dll is a file system of the operating system.

    Method 1

    I suggest that you save the file on your computer and check if Windows media player works.

    (a) click the Start button.

    (b) in the search box, type command prompt.

    (c) in the list of results, right-click guest, and then click run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    (d) in the type command regsvr32 kernelbase.dll line press ENTER.

    (e) close the command prompt

    Method 2

    If the previous step fails then I suggest that scan you SFC on the computer that would be a system file corrupt on the computer search and replace.

    The analysis may take some time, so be patient. Windows allows to fix corrupt or missing files it finds. If the information of the installation CD is required to fix the problem, you may be asked to insert your Windows Vista installation CD.

    Can I use windows media player to play mp3 and have the recigition speech to convert to text?

    You can get on a conversion of 70% in reading a file in Windows Media Player using something like Dragon Naturally Speaking to convert. If you set the playback speed to slow in Windows Media Player to play > play speed, you will get a better result. The best option is to download the file to an audio transcription service, but which generally costs 0, 50-1, 00 per minute of audio.

  • Can't reinstall Windows Media Player - HELP!

    I use Windows Media Center edition 2004.  Lately my Windows Media Player has stopped working.  I get a message to re - install.  My WMC 2004 records are stored out of State, and I can't seem to them.  I tried to download Windows Media Player 11, but I get an error during the installation, saying it is only compatible with WMC 2005 and later.  I tried to install older versions of Windows Media Player, like 10 or 9, but I get an error saying that it has detected a newer version on my computer and will not let me continue with the installation.

    How can I get Windows Media Player features?  I can't get my disc out of State, and I can't afford to buy a new operating system.
