I have a similar problem, my media player comes starts ok, but anything I try

to play in it no matter what it is or where it's at (CD, DVD, or on my Hard

Drive, Playlists don't work either) results in the following message (copied

from event viewer)

Application popup: Media Event Sink Window: wmplayer.exe - Application Error

: The instruction at "0x45c7c033" referenced memory at "0x45c7c033". The

memory could not be "read".

I have tried to reinstall it (doesn't work) to fix it. I haven't got a clue

why it just quit working. I didn't install any codecs or other software, it

just quit. I've tried running Anti-Virus, Registry Cleaner (Reg Seeker),

Spybot, Adaware, and they all come up blank as for an external reason it

won't work. WMP is the only program on here that won't work too.

I have been searching for the answer on here and can't find it. I used to

use my media player for everything. I love it and want it back. I've had to

resort to using Nero player since and it works perfectly, but I don't like it

as much as my media player. I don't have the $35 to email Microsoft, can

someone please help!!

    • Do you get the chance to send up an error report?

    • I don't remember if I sent an error report or not. I stopped using it a while

      back. I have read the WMP 10 FAQ though, didn't help address my problem. I

      really miss having my WMP. I used it for everything. I appreciate your reply

      a lot and thank you for your help.

    • Well,

      http://zachd.com/pss/pss.html#bucket

      would help you get further along if you sent up that crash report, since

      that crash bucket number is of high value. =\
