Windows Media Player won't open


When I open Windows Media Player, nothing happens (not even an error message is diplayed).


  • Click on Start > Run.
  • Enter these commands one after the another:
    • regsvr32 jscript.dll 
    • regsvr32 vbscript.dll
Note that:
  • For Vista and Seven, just type these commands in theSearch bar.
