This is for everyone who has downloaded the WIN Media
Player 7.1, and now gets stack fault errors for
wmpcore.dll and kernel32.dll, and your Media Player won't
I tried the fix in KB article Q303097, which uninstalls,
change some file extensions, then reinstalls WMP. But when
reinstalling, the Media Components Installer does not show
check boxes to let you deselect/uncheck the Adaptec Cd
Burner plugin which causes the error messages.
I found some info from zachd (ms) at
which mentioned trying to not uninstall (sometimes
overkill), just reinstall WMP OVER itself.
When I did this, the Media Components Installer DOES show
the check boxes for specific items, and after unchecking
the adaptec plugin, and restarting, my Media Player works
So THANKS VERY MUCH ZACHD! I'm enjoying my music again
thanks to you!
OK, once gain....
Install WMP 7.1 WITHOUT uninstallin first.
Check "Reinstall all components", then uncheck "Adaptec CD
burner plug-in". Afterward, restart and you should be up
and running! (And you don't have to change any file
Best to you all!
