Wmplayer.exe – Application Error message on Windows

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Someone please help me with this issue on Windows Movie Maker. I have restarted the machine several times for this error message and I do not want to keep rebooting the machine every 30 minutes this error pop’s up.

I have the application on my Windows XP machine. The application words fine for 20 to 30 minutes without any issues, later it gives the following error message and crashes.

It makes my machine completely irresponsive after it crashes. Does it mean that I have a bad RAM?



wmplayer.exe – Application Error

The instruction at “0x078f0807” referenced memory at “0x08be8c30”. The memory could not be “read”.

Click on OK to terminate the program

First you have to check that is there any virus in your system. Maybe that virus is causing this trouble. Scan your computer and try to find out. Which version of Wmplayer are you using? And where did you get from. Is it registered? If it is registered then update it or else get the registered and updated one. Make sure there is no corrupt file in your Wmplayer or in your windows. Otherwise you have to repair the corrupt files or uninstall the Wmplayer and restart your system and reinstall it. If you are finding a trouble from the normal mode then you can perform this task from the safe mode too. There is another manual method which is discussed in the following link. Use it and hope you will get a lot of help from that.

Wmplayer.exe – Application Error message on Windows


Well, I don’t think that problem is with Windows Movie Maker because the error was from “wmplayer.exe” and that’s the main executable of Windows Media Player. I also receive that error sometimes but during shut down or when there are still programs running when I shut down Windows. Normally, that error is temporary and will not appear again after booting Windows.

If it keeps coming back every 30 minutes and always related to that file, try disabling Windows Media Player and then enable it back. Click “Start,” “Control Panel,” and then “Add or Remove Programs.” On the left pane, click “Add/Remove Windows Components.” On the next screen, uncheck “Windows Media Player” then click “Next.”

Uncheck Windows Media Player

After this, restart the computer. After booting, repeat the same steps then check “Windows Media Player” to re-enable it. See if this works.
