That problem can either be related to your internet connection or the Windows Media Player itself. If you are trying to open a link within the application, check if your internet connection is working. Launch your web browser and visit a website to check your connectivity. If the error appears when you try to open a media file like an AVI file, here’s a workaround.

The problem can happen occasionally when you try to open a media file in Windows Media Player. The application does nothing for about 30 seconds and then brings up this error in the image.

Open an elevated command prompt. Click “Start”, “All Programs”, and then “Accessories”. Right-click “Command Prompt” and select “Run as administrator”. Enter your administrator password and continue. In the command prompt, type without quotes “regsvr32 jscript.dll” then hit Enter. When you are prompted, click “OK”. Again, type without quotes “regsvr32 vbscript.dll” then hit Enter. Click “OK” again when you are prompted.

Close the command prompt and try opening the media file again. See if this fixes the problem. If this doesn’t work, try updating Windows Media Player or run Windows Update and then install any available updates for your operating system.
