Windows Media Player - WMPLOC.DLL version error

April 2017




Issue


I'm getting the following error with Windows Media Player, when opening video files.
"WMPLOC.DLL HAS A VERSION NUMBER 11.0.6000.6336 WHERE 11.0.6000.6324 WAS EXPECTED"

Solution

  • Click on Start > Run > regedit
  • Look for the following keys and delete them:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Setup\\wmplayer.exe
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Setup\wmp.dll
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Setup\wmploc.dll
