WMP12, Windows 7, problems

Postposted on Wed Dec 01, 2010 11:58 pm

OK. I don't know what to make of this.
WMP12 will not successfully launch anymore. It was working fine until tonight, and now it won't launch. Apparently you can't uninstall/reinstall WMP12 in W7; you have to go the options to turn windows components on or off, which I've done 2x. It didn't fix it. I turn it off, reboot, turn it back on, reboot again and I still can't launch.
It'll try to launch, but hangs and evnetually the little error message pops up saying "Windows Media Player is not responding" with an option to wait or to end program.
ANything?

oh; this is saved as the target when I try to launch the program. I'm not sure if it's supposed to say this:
%windir%\ehome\ehshell.exe

It *finally* gave me an error message at least:
C:\Users\The Whites\AppData\Local\Temp\WER6190.tmp.appcompat.txt
C:\Users\The Whites\AppData\Local\Temp\WER620E.tmp.WERInternalMetadata.xml
C:\Users\The Whites\AppData\Local\Temp\WER893E.tmp.hdmp
C:\Users\The Whites\AppData\Local\Temp\WER9188.tmp.xml

ehshell.exe is Windows Media Center. What does that have to do with WMP12?
