Windows Media Player 11
For Windows XP/MCE/2k3, Last Updated 2011/6/29

Description:
    This addon will replace your Windows Media Player Component in your windows installation CD with its contents.

    Why your first release is V3? Check this post.

    Why do you release another WMP11 Addon as boooggy and onepiece both do good job?
    I have workd on an addon including Windows Media Player 10 and Windows Media 11 Runtimes, therefore i only need to modify a few to create this addon.
    This addon has all the features listed below:
    1. Compatibility with XP/MCE/2k3 in one Addon. for 2k3, M$ does not install skins but this addon does.
    2. Obsolete files are removed. They are either utility to migrate DRM stuffs or a file with several KiloBytes which is used to overwrite the old file.
    3. Addon structure: File Copy and Registry handling are system-like.
    4. A working MTP on Windows 2003, both their WMP Integration solution can't offer this.
Contents:
Credits:
Download:
Notes:
  • On a Windows XP SP2/MCE2005 source, KB908536 and KB894871 or any hotfixes that supersede them are required. Make sure you have proper UpdatePack/Hotfixes integrated.
  • Integrate this addon on a source without any other people's WMP addon.
  • Known Issues:
    • On Windows 2003, MTP driver is not signed, so that you should follow the wizard and click on "next" to install driver for your MTP devices.

I also get the error message with nLite posted by kaitsevaim. Subsequently, I get 3 other related error messages:
- Error while extracting file wpd.inf!
- Missing file: wpd.inf. Fatal error.
- wpd.inf not saved!

sorry for any inconviences to you. I should have explained it.
As I talked, 2k3 doesn't have wmp skins installed, therefore 2k3 doesn't have skins.inf and doesn't execute this inf file. Samely, xp doesn't have wpd.inf but 2k3 have this file because 2k3 sp2 includes wmp10(and wpd is a new component for wmp 10). As a result, in order to make this pack xp/2000/2k3 compatible, I can use NEITHER of these two infs to install its component, and i must DISABLE them. nLite will report wpd.inf issue on xp and skins.inf issue on 2k3.
The issue is not a fatal error and is by design.

This issue can be simply solved if i just use a dummy skins.inf and a dummy wpd.inf in this pack, rather than disable them by editing. but this will introduce a new issue, we put wpd.inf to xp source, or we put skins.inf to 2k3 source, resulting unnecessary files...
However i'll consider this solution in next release.

Now this issue (may) only affects if you use an unattend integration process(i.e. AutoImage, PowerPacker, etc.). for human-attended process, you can just click on "OK" and omit it.

in the integrator you are able to specify files which are supposed to be specific to XP Home, XP Pro or 2003.

At least... that was my plan. As you may know you can place files in an updatepack/addon inside of a "HOME" folder to specify files for XP Home. Or a "PRO" folder for XP Pro. But I think I also implemented a "2003" folder as well. This is useful if you have addons like this which need to be specific depending on what Windows OS it is integrated to. Remember you can place any info in these specific folders. Even extra Entries files. Wink

i plan on expanding into this idea much more in future releases of the integrator as well... which I have spoken about in the past in the RVM Integrator developers forum.

oh sry i didnŽt notice that...i need glasses Razz This must be a silly question, but why does microsoft update say...Windows Media Player (for Windows Media Center Edition) . In my opinion it should mean that XP Pro or Home and MCE 2005 Media Player 10/11 are not entirely the same or how must i understand it? Confused

they are same, in any degree.

The only reason why M$ release a version of WMP(for MCE) is because Media Center is intended to be updated to support new features introduced by WMP11. Once you download the full pack through catalog.update.microsoft.com, you'll get to see two installers. One of them is just same as legency WMP 11 installer, and another is an update for MCE.(i don't remember what KB number it is)
However, if you apply roll-up 2 for MCE, you won't receive this specific update. So you only need my WMP 11 Addon + MCE Roll-Up 2 to keep your MCE up-to-date.

yeah understood...the problem is that i cant find the MCE Roll-Up 2 addon anywhere, only MCE component addon for XP Pro which is a huge file. The hotfix (KB900325) wont integrate that MS offers. OK! There should be another thread for it, so...let it be.

PS! You could send me a link to that kind of addon if u find any... Smile

To be honest... sure it's possible to make a MCE component update addon - true addon. but it requires to update the user's cmpnents folder... for MCE specific files... extracting mediactr.cab then recabbing it is also required. Thus it may be a little bit annoying to do this. and M$ doesn't allow people release such an addon containing MCE component if we just make an addon with updated mediactr.cab...

so if you don't mind, you can run KB900325 at T-13(svcpack.inf), using switch /q.

i said it wont integrate, at least with nlite, also via svcpack. Maybe with RVM integrator it does, i dont know. Updated mediactr.cab is a very good idea. I hope thats allowed if i understood you right. Here are all kinds of update packs...why cant we make a component update pack? IŽll do a request thread soon. Cool

hey yumeyao! KB959772 still shows up in Microsoft update. I integrated the hf manually after this addon and now automatic updates is happy Smile . So...i guess there are some missing entries or something about the versions of the files updated by the hotfix. Could you please verify?

Nice work....

One quick question.....

I know they used to say integrate IE7 before WMP 11....

Now that IE8 is out....

Does this require any particular order of integration?

IE8 first, then this etc.....

Thanks for all your work.... It is very much appreciated!

I never heard the saying of "integrate IE7 before WMP 11"...
I can tell, there wouldn't be any conflict between IE and wmp, at least, i think both onepiece's and sereby's IE8 addon can be integrated with this addon without worrying about order.

for me, since i've just finished my IE8 addon, so my order is somehow like "WMP 11 before IE8"..... but, this is not intended, you can see.

Thanks for this, yumeyao. However, when I have the addon installed and I choose to view a video file in fullscreen, moving the mouse around causes a flickering of both the mouse cursor and the control panel at the bottom. When moving the mouse into the control panel, the flickering stops, but I don't recall a "normally" installed WMP11 to flicker these places when moving the mouse around in a fullscreen environment. Is this something that is fixable (if it is indeed cause by the addon). Thanks.

run regedit, browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Preferences, then deletes value FSControls_ControlsTimeout, FSControls_CursorTimeout and FSControls_MoveSpeed.

It'll be fixed, or behavior-optimized in next version. thanks for feeding back.

Thanks. I think I've found another problem. If I open a video and then close the player again, I can't delete the video afterwards. It's like WMP doesn't "release" the file, and I have to reboot in order to be able to delete the file. Anyone else get this?

I don't think so. It must be Windows Explorer's video preview, that prevents you from deleting it.

So, it looks like I'm the only dumb one here Smile I thought I read this through but I'm missing something. I was planning on sliptreaming this with nlite. Do I actually just need to copy all of the files from the zipped file into i386 (and needed subfolders)?

No. In nLite, select "Hotfixes, Add-ons & Update Packs"; then select "Insert" and browse to the location where you saved yumeyao's WMP11 addon.

When installing XP with integrated SP3 QFE Update Pack (user_hidden) and checking the system with Autopatcher, Iit indicates that KB968816 is installed . When I install the updatepack including your wmp11 addon , Autopatcher indicates KB968816 is not installed. Any idea why this is so?

edit::
I also noticed that the KB968816.cat file from WMP11 and the QFE UpdatePack KB968816.CAT are not identical.

Thanks, Al

updated.

@adric
it's not kb968816.cat that causes this issue. I think it's because of AutoPatcher's update checking method. Try Windows Update for a precise check.

@yumeyao

From what I have been able to determine, one of the checks Autopatcher uses, is to see if the .cat files for that fix both have the same md5sum. If they do not, Autopatcher will assume that the installed fix is an older version than what it has downloaded from msoft. and not flag it as installed.

I would still like to know why your .cat file for that fix is different than the one that comes from msoft.

ok, I see. My cat IS from M$, only that it may not comes from enu branch. But in fact all updates in different languages share same file here, it's because the cat files signs update.inf so they differ.

BTW, does autopatcher stop asking you for it after you have replaced the cat file?

I 'm not sure. I will try replacing the .cat file and md5sum it has with yours and let you know, but I need to do a new install since I've been doing some tests installing from usb and I recently wiped my SP3 partition, so I may not have an answer for you right away

a hard test(200+MiB of downloading at 10KB/s and the AutoPatcher Updater cracks again and again) result:
yes you are correct. I'll put the english KB968816.cat in next release.

BTW, I see many updates are reported as missing by autopatcher(I have my WMP Addon + user_hidden's Update Pack integrated), and most of them are obsolete or unappliable(requiring certain situations), so why are you still sticking to this one?

I only use autopatcher to do some cross-checking after installing addons and update packs. I also like to have all MS update files in one place without having to go online in case I need to install something that is not on my system

I too noticed updates being reported as missing, but after checking them, I decided they were not needed and left it at that.

This addon has a similar issue as the OnePiece addon, at least before he fixed it.

The OnePiece addon had Media Sharing that did not work.

This addon has Media Sharing that cannot be enabled.

Other than that the addon installs aand runs fine.

@StarChild
can you write a simple guide on how to test it? thx.

and you may try extract WindowsXP-MSCompPackV1-x86.exe from WMP11 installer, then install it, to see whether it fixes this issue.



EDIT:
after reading wmp help, I know how to enable it. Yes the issue exists.

EDIT2:
installing WindowsXP-MSCompPackV1-x86.exe won't fix ths issue. I'll work to see the reason later.

EDIT3:
I found the solution.
click on "start" -> "run", type
Code:
regsvr32.exe /s "%programfiles%\windows media player\wmpnssci.dll"
and hit return.

then click on "start" -> "run", type
Code:
"%programfiles%\windows media player\WMPNetwk.exe" install
and hit return.

Obsolutely I'll update this addon to fix this issue asap. thanks for your feedback.
