Skins for Windows does not apply on Windows Media Player 11

I use Windows Media Player 11 for Vista 64 bit and I download a skin and try to apply it to every time it won't work. It only works if I double click the skin file and I won't continue to do it every time. I tried to look for answers to this problem of alreadt, but every single response is to go to http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Change-how-Windows-Media-Player-looks-using-skins and it does not at all help.

Hi Matt,

You save the skin before applying it or run it directly?

If you save the skin before applying, you must double-click it to apply. Other wise, you must change the mouse settings to use the single click.

For more information, you can consult the following article:

Using your mouse

Hope this information is useful.

    ========================================
    I was wondering... you are totally unable to download the file
    on your hard drive? Or... you can download the file to your hard drive
    by car, but simply cannot display it?

    If you right click the executable for Windows Media Player and
    in the menu choose... Properties / Compatibility tab is...
    Windows 95, chosen for Compatibility Mode? If_Yes_try
    unchecking the box / apply / OK.

    It might be the next thread deals with the same issue...

  • Is there a possibility that MusicBrainz can be added as a data provider for Windows Media Player

    When you use Windows Media Player, I was hurt a lot to identify my music. A lot of music I have is not available in the Microsoft music meta service database. What gives? Would be nice if Microsoft could be added to their database. MusicBrainz is a big data provider for Windows Media Player and would make it easier for information about the available media. Data MusicBrainz are permitted in the public domain and some under Creative Commons (CC) license. I don't think that Rovi has a contract saying to Microsoft data to use. I can cite other data in addition to the AMG providers: Journal of CD Japan, CD newspaper China, ZACR DBS and feedback from users. I can almost guarantee you if Microsoft used the MusicBrainz data, Windows Media Player would be much easier for the Organization of the music. Data MusicBrainz are much better quality than WMP user feedback data.

  • Just installed update for Windows Media Player 11 and now, all the songs I had in my library before the update, I get the message you need a license to play these songs.

    These songs have been copied to my computer from the CD that I bought at retail, and have played several times.  Is there a process where they can be reinstated? I don't know if it's the right word, but I hate having to download individual licenses for these songs. And why doesn't IE throw me on the internet as soon as the download license screen happens?  Do I have to uninstall the update?

    Hello

    1. What is the exact error message you get?
    2. what version of Internet Explorer you are using?
    3. do you have an error message when Internet Explorer throws you off the screen?
    4. you remember the update that caused the problem to occur?

    Follow the steps in this article and see if the problem still occurs.

  • Transfer of visualizations for Windows Media Player 12

    I have two computers. My office is a Windows XP Home Edition and my laptop is a Windows 7 Professional edition. I was wondering if it is possible to somehow get the visualizations of my Windows XP Media Player 9 converted to work on my Windows 7 Media Player 12.

    Where it is simply not possible or too much work in the long term, I was always curious why Plenoptic visualizations have been abandoned by the time released Windows Media Player 11. Microsoft or someone else would be able to do these visualizations to be reused?

    Hi Br4nd0nW,

    Welcome to the Microsoft Windows answers Forum community!

    Plenoptic was not entirely compatible with Media Player v12 and all non compatible
    visualizations have been removed. Those who have tried to install this file from
    Media player v9 did not have much luck.

    You can see these links for help:

    You can get most visualizations on the following Web site. Visualizations for Windows Media Player: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/visualizations.aspx

    Hope this information helped!

    Finally, I fixed my problem of codec.  It turns out that it is the 6.9.2.26 codec DIVX version.  I uninstalled all DIVX software and re-installed 6.8.5 and now everything works.  Windows Media Player 11 now play AVI encoded with mjpg, as well as Adobe first Elements 4 camera.  In addition, first elements will now load a DX50 encoded AVI, who had stopped working as well.

    Hi jeffndeb,

    (1) you get an error message?

    (2) that you get any notification or message to update the security component?

    I want to clarify if you are referring to the link below

    Method 1: If you are running a 64-bit version of Windows Vista(x64), then on the button Update on the site can be dimmed, you need to start Internet Explorer by using an account on the computer that has administrative privileges to be able to continue.

    Method 2: There is a 32-bit version of IE7/IE8 in Vista which are located in the folder "Program Files x 86" in the Local C: drive.

    Navigate to the location and then try to run 32-bit Internet Explorer

    "C:\Program Files (x 86) \Internet.

    Double-click iexplore.exe to launch 32 bit Internet Explorer (IE) and then try to navigate to setting component security update link above, check if you can click on the upgrade button.
