What is the difference between Windows Media Player and Windows Media Center?

Have Windows 7 Ultimate operating systems.  I have Windows Media Player and Windows Media Center on my HP computer.  Can I both programs?  Who better to synchronize the music with a Walkman Zune?  What is the difference between these two programs?

Hello

Windows Media Player is a reading application where you can play music, videos and synchronization devices.

  • What is the difference between adobe flash player and adobe shockwave player?

    Hello, everyone-

    first of all, I am a newbie for a long time , and I apologize for my ignorance.  I hope that the kind and gracious people here will have pity.

    Secondly, I am swapping this Q in the forum "adobe flash player".  If it is not appropriate to publish in more than one forum at a time, please tell me, then put this survey every time you think that it is more applicable.

    I ask about the difference between these two applications, because I tried to install a more recent version of flash player. I have 11.4.402.265 and is 11.4.402.278.  somehow, though, I headed in install shockwave player 11.5.9.620 instead.  (I had other problems too, but they are quite different, so I'll fix it in a separate debate.)

    now I just need to know if I destroyed my computer, if I should try to undo what I have done, what have I made, need I or not if it matter if I have these two programs on my computer at the time, and other issues that people more knowledgeable can say I need to ask questions about but I am too tech -UNsavvy to know to include.

    Thanks for all that help someone can provide.   I'm on a dell optiplex 330, windows XP pro/SP3, IE 8.0.6001.18702.

    Hi Susie.

    As a general rule, it is best to only post in a forum. The reason is that someone can take the time to answer, but the answer can already provided elsewhere. I'll answer the question here and you can post to your topic on the forum Flash that you have received a response.

    The difference is:

    Flash Player - play content with extension SWF, often created with Adobe Flash Pro. There are other tools that can publish to swf format. Illustrator can even export to swf format.

    Shockwave Player - play content with the DCR extension - created with Adobe Director.

    The term Shockwave has confused people in the past. Flash was Shockwave Flash. Now, Flash and Shockwave are separate things. It shouldn't damage your computer to have both installed. They are the two plugins web trust. If you have installed the from the Adobe Web site, you should be fine.

    Some examples of different content:

    Shockwave: http://www.adobe.com/products/shockwaveplayer/gokart/
    Flash: http://themirage.fr/

    Hope that clears things up for you.

  • What is the difference between Windows XP Mode and Windows XP Mode "N".

    Thank you for your response.

    The "n" of Windows versions contain no Windows Media Player. It is the result of an agreement with the European Commission to settle the dispute of the competition.

    Hello

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.
    If my assumption is correct, you are looking for which file to download service pack update.
    Worry not choose files. Download the .iso to the update file, either burn it or mount or extract it and install. These files are called the symbol files. They differ in the language, for example. frequency refers to the French version. They are used to debug the Service Pack and are not really necessary unless you start to run into problems and try to find solutions on your own.

  • What is the difference between Windows 7 OEM and the retail version of Windows 7?

    Can someone tell me, what is the difference between windows 7 OEM and sales vs retail?

    On Thu, 20 Sep 2012 19:56:47 + 0000, STEVE-5 says:

    Can someone tell me, what is the difference between windows 7 OEM and sales vs retail?

    There is no difference in the product itself.

    Although if you get a generic OEM full version, it contains the
    even software, it has the following disadvantages compared to the
    commercial version:

    1. the biggest drawback of an OEM version (at least in the USA) is
    that its license it permanently binds to the first computer, it is
    installed on. He can never legally be moved to another computer, sold,
    or given (except with the original computer). If the computer
    dies or is stolen, your license dies with him.

    2. he can't do a clean install, not an upgrade.

    3 Microsoft offers no support for OEM versions. You cannot call their
    with a problem, but rather to secure the necessary support of your
    OEM; who take in charge may go anywhere between property and non-existent. Or
    You can get support elsewhere, like in these forums.

    What is the difference between windows 7 pro debug/checked and simple windows 7 pro? /

    Regular accumulation is the regular version at retail of Windows because most of us use (SP1 or not).

    The build Debug/Check is specifically aimed at developers who developed to make it easier for the debugging flag
    drivers to be developed. This build runs much slower due to the abduction of optimizations and other functions.

  • What is the difference between HP Photo Creations and Snapfish

    I've been curious.

    What is the difference between HP Photo Creations and Snapfish?

    Hi Jeff17866. The difference between these two services are the location, accessibility and share-ability of the recorded images. Snapfish is a photo on the web edition and sharing and belonged to printing HP service. You upload your images on the Snapfish site and share with other sites (Facebook, Flickr, etc) by selecting the appropriate options. The images are then stored on the cloud, and you will be able to access it from any device with Internet access. So, if you want to easily share your photos with your friends and family around the country, Snapfish is a great tool to do. HP Photo Creations is a photo editing software that you download to your desktop. You can edit your photos and order prints just as with Snapfish, but all pictures remain on your hard drive. They can be shared by downloading files on the sites you want the images appear, but you are not able to access it on other devices. -Chauntain

    Difficulty: Adobe free new Photoshop Fix, capture CC apps enhance your photographs and capture assets | PCWorld

    Fixed introduced options that allow you to 'fix' and enhance your images in photo editing.

    Mix: photo and image editor app | Download Adobe Photoshop Mix

    Mix presents the composition options. This means that you can combine several images, cut out backgrounds and active layer.


    Express: Photoshop Express is like a version blocked Photoshop with an interface that looks like the desktop application.

    Thus, with respect to the app you choose, it really depends on what you would use it for. Do one of these hopeful sounds?
