yes, this is my latest greatest Media Player 11 for Win2003 :D

http://rapidshare.de/files/31805797/Media_...r_11__w2k3_.exe

no tricks, no retries, just stay calm and do what command line interface says

1. Press any key to install media player 11 runtime

2. After installation complete & all windows closed press any key to install media player 11

3. After installation complete & all windows closed press any key to apply a registry patch

4. press any key to exit ;)

To Obsteel:

Your installation package works, but not stable, sometimes WMP11 crashes in my Windows Server 2003.

Is this even allowed? I thought we weren't allowed to discuss circumventing the installer? Someone correct me if I am wrong?

If not more power to you guys. Nice to see WMP11 ported to Windows Server 2003. (Y)

With Server 2003 SP2, Extract wmp11-windowsxp-x86-enu.exe,

run wmfdist11.exe in XP Compatibilty mode

run wmp11.exe in XP Compatibility mode, installs WMP11 :)

Said that the service pack was lower than required when I tried to run wmfdist11.exe in compat mode.

Anyone have a graceful fix for the final version?

I see you have SP2 installed and that's why compatibility mode works. Is there any way to change the SP # in the registry?

I give you a good advice:

Do not believe every $%?& people write in forum posts.:DD

Win2K3 SP2 is out in the spring of 2007 and SP1 _IS_ the latest.

[edit] if the installer author was a woman, i would give her a *mmmmmwah*!

This thing installs OUT OF THE BOX now! I have no idea how you did this, but well - I'm impressed!:woot::

But note: this installer will install the BETA, not the final!>

I only believe things I have checked myself, so listen:

WMP11 contains a wmpmde.dll which has version 11.0.5721.5145 in the final release.

In the build available from rapidshare, the version number is only 11.0.5705.5043.

So this installer will install the beta, not the final version!

Could anyone also provide this kind of smart installer for the final, please?

SP2 is in beta now and a number of people are running it. I have no reason not to believe that he is one of them. :rolleyes:

Thanks for this - it solves a problem for many people and is

complicated with all those CAT and INF files, then putting it all

back together again... tough job, but you did it, thanks!!

Exactly what I was going to ask! :blush:

Pretty please!!!

Ah I see someone else who doesn't let fool himself and checks file versions to determine beta/final :D

New results: I am back to Windows Media Player 10. My Creative Zen V did NOT work anymore after the hack was installed. WMP11 is the sh.. in looks, but I will not allow my MP3 player support to be broken afterwards. If you have a Creative Zen device, *P L E A S E* make a full image of your system partition before you install the WMP11 hack!!!!

Otherwise you might end up with a wonderful media player but will be unable to fill your mp3 player with music.

Watch out!

WMP11 updated, anybody repacks the setup files to facilitate installation in Windows Server 2003 ?

1. Download and extract the Windows Media Player 11 installer using WinRar.

2. Delete everything in the mpsetup folder except for wmp11.exe and wmfdist11.exe.

3. Extract wmp11.exe and wmfdist11.exe using Winrar. Be sure to use the ?extract to? option.

4. Extract my installer into the mpsetup folder

5. Make sure your mpsetup looks like the image below and run install.bat

Timing is still a slight issue but I have used this installer on three different machines and it does work. If you get an error message just run my installer again. The second try has always worked here.

For some reason my host won't allow me to link to the file and Neowin is screwing up my installer. I'm trying to get it posted

Hi, i was read your faq, but me too can't succeed to install WMP11, I receive alway error about Crytography service, but this service is run!

Hi

I have successfully installed the release version of WMP11 on 2003 Server using this thread as a guide. Thanks for the info.

I have started a new thread for issues encountered while actually running WMP11.

http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=513670

So here's the details of my install.

1. On a demo machine !!

2. Download wmp11-windowsxp-x86-enu.exe from Microsoft. (I had to change my user agent in my browser from 2003 -> xp before I was allowed to download this)

3.Download Installer.zip from this thread.

4. Unpack using the instructions above.

5. This is NEW! Keep wmdbexport.exe It will create a file wmdbexport.xml when run. This enables you to transfer your WMP10 database to WMP11.

6. In the mpsetup folder I overwrote the four inf files 2k3.inf, 2k32.inf , xp.inf and xp2.inf using the actual inf files from the release version of WMP11 that I had downloaded. They are not the same size as those downloaded in the zip. Adjust 2k3.inf, 2k32.inf with the 2003 codes. See above.

7. Run the batch file. I got the cryptographic error on first run. I altered the pause delay from 1 to 4 and it ran fine.

WMP11 is installed and working fine.

You can upgrade your WMP10 database CurrentDatabase_219.wmdb to the version for WMP11 CurrentDatabase_360.wmdb at any time. Delete the latter, run wmdbexport.exe and reopen WMP11.

Hi lucifer1972

If you get the Crytography Service Error try altering the delay in the batch file.

Supposedly higher for a slow processor and lower for a fast one.

This worked for me. (Although the install might just have worked second time around whatever)

Hi again

Have a further update on the install of wmp11 into 2003server.

The final release version of wmp11 is 11.0.5721.5145

The batch file available in this thread includes a registry fix fv.reg

This updates the registry to version 11.0.5358.4826

On my first install this registry fix was irrelevant because the installer added the correct data to the registry.

On my second install this didn't happen hence this comment.

the file fv.reg should read

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Setup\Installed Versions]

"wmp.dll"=hex:00,00,0b,00,19,14,59,16

"wmploc.dll"=hex:00,00,0b,00,19,14,59,16

"wmplayer.exe"=hex:00,00,0b,00,19,14,59,16

run wmfdist11.exe in XP Compatibilty mode

run wmp11.exe in XP Compatibility mode, installs WMP11 :)

I just installed RC of SP2 and can confirm that this works great. :yes:

Could someone with wmp11 on 2003 server test the WMC functionality?

Would be much appreciated for all of us with xbox 360s or media players using that functionality.
