    Rolling back to a previous version of the Player

    Windows Media Player is a feature of the Windows operating system and cannot be removed entirely. However, in Windows XP, you can roll back to the version of the Player that was previously on your computer.

    You must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group to perform the following procedure.

    1.

    Disconnect any portable music or video devices that might be attached to your computer.

    2.

    Click Start, and then click Control Panel.

    3.

    In the Category View of Control Panel, click Add or Remove Programs, and then click Remove a program.

    4.

    Click Windows Media Player 11, and then click Remove.

    If Windows Media Player 11 is not displayed in the list of currently installed programs, then try the following:

    1.

    At the top of the list, select the Show updates check box.

    2.

    In the Windows XP - Software Updates section, click Windows Media Player 11, and then click Change/Remove.

    5.

    In each of the two confirmation dialog boxes that appear, click OK.

    6.

    When the rollback process is complete (it might take several minutes), click Restart.

    7.

    Click Start, and then click Control Panel.

    8.

    In the Category View of Control Panel, click Add or Remove Programs, and then click Remove a program.

    9.

    Click Windows Media Format 11 Runtime, and then click Remove.

    If Windows Media Format 11 Runtime is not displayed in the list of currently installed programs, then try the following:

    1.

    At the top of the list, select the Show updates check box.

    2.

    In the Windows XP - Software Updates section, click Windows Media Format 11 Runtime, and then click Change/Remove.

    If you installed a non-US English version of Windows Media Player 11, the instructions in the dialog boxes that are mentioned in steps 9, 10, and 11 might appear in English.

    10.

    In the first confirmation dialog box that appears, click OK.

    11.

    In the second confirmation dialog box that appears, select the Do you want to continue with the rollback? check box, and then click OK.

    12.

    When the rollback process is complete (it might take several minutes to complete), click Restart.

    13.

    Click Start, and then click Control Panel.

    14.

    In the Category View of Control Panel, click Add or Remove Programs, and then click Remove a program.

    15.

    Click Microsoft User-Mode Driver Framework Feature Pack 1.0.0, and then click Remove.

    16.

    Follow the instructions that appear in the Software Update Removal Wizard.

    If the Wudf01000 confirmation dialog box appears, click Yes to continue. When the software removal process is complete (it might take several minutes to complete), click Finish.

    Note If you remove Windows Media Player 11 and the Windows Media Format 11 Runtime, and then encounter error C00D271D ("A problem has occurred in the Digital Rights Management component. Contact Microsoft product support."), you might be able to resolve the problem by installing the Windows Media Format 9.5 Runtime. For information about installing the Runtime, in the Microsoft Knowledge Base, see article 891122, "Update for Windows Media Digital Rights Management-enabled players."

    You might not be able to roll back to a previous version of the Player if the hidden folder $NtUninstallwmp11$ is deleted from your computer. Some non-Microsoft programs (such as CCleaner) delete this folder in an attempt to remove unwanted files from your computer.

    Microsoft has just released an compulsory update to Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) Validation Tool that makes most of the workarounds, hacks, patches and cracks to bypass and skip the WGA validation check useless. Windows Genuine Advantage Validation Tool was introduced by Microsoft beginning from second half of 2005, where the tool will check and validate your system’s Windows XP whether it is licensed, certified as authentic, and published and supported by Microsoft, before you can obtain programs from the Microsoft Download Center or receive software updates from Windows Update. With the new WGA update, it is now impossible to bypass Windows Genuine Advantage validation check by disabling or turning off WGA Validation Tool in Manage Add-Ons in Internet Explorer. The Enable and Disable settings for WGA Validation Tool no longer selectable, with the option greyed out so that you unable to select Disable to deactivate the WGA ActiveX. Kalra
