Windows Media player 11 is the latest version of Microsoft. It is very nice music player. But it needs Windows XP service pack 2 or better.  Make sure your windows is XP SP2 or better. There are some tricks to install Windows media player 11. You have to use genuine version of windows.

I am telling you the trick in the following :

Make sure that you have "LegitLibM.dll" file. If your windows media player do not have this file then download it and copy it into the windows media file 11 folder.

Now open "setup_wm.exe" and restart your PC.

That error simply means you are not using an administrator account when installing Windows Media Player 11. If you have multiple user accounts on your computer, use the user account with administrator rights so you can install Windows Media Player 11. Microsoft Windows Media Player 11 is the latest and last version of Windows Media Player for Windows XP.

It requires Windows XP Service Pack 2 and higher and supports all editions of Microsoft Windows XP including Windows XP Home Edition N and Windows XP Professional N. If the problem continues even when using an admin account, here’s another way of installing Windows Media Player 11 piece by piece. First, download Windows Media Player 11 on FileHippo but don’t install it.

Next, unpack “wmp11-windowsxp-x86-enu.exe” using WinZip, WinRAR, or 7-Zip. To do this, right-click “wmp11-windowsxp-x86-enu.exe” then point to “7-Zip” and select “Extract”. Next, double-click the following executable in the right order then install one after the other:

  • wmfdist11.exe
  • wmp11.exe
  • umdf.exe
  • WindowsXP-MSCompPackV1-x86.exe
  • wmpappcompat.exe – run this only if you have Windows XP Service Pack 2 because it is not required on Service Pack 3

Lastly, navigate to “C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player” then rename “LegitLibM.dll” to “LegitLib.dll”. Start Windows Media Player after this to begin migrating to the new version and configure the settings.
