This should work on any future releases as well. You would have to extract and replace a few things though. I'm hoping MS will release the next beta for WinS2k3 but if not I will keep this topic updated.

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

http://rapidshare.de...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?
