i was trying to install windows media player
@C:\Windows\System\SMGR.DLL the version number is
v188.8.131.5203 what do i do now? @ the end of the media
player 9 instalation this following message pops
up ...."it was not possible to
complete setup windows media player 9 series was not
instaled. to update windows, run windows media player 9
series setup again." i ran it again and the same thing
happened, what do i do? suggestions anyone?
>you ran which update??
>the update you need is this one, for System Restore....
>It's possible that you haven't installed the System
Restore Patch - without
>which any current restore points are just space fillers.
>To check this, look for the file
C:\Windows\System\SMGR.DLL - r-click on the
>file, and select Properties.
>What's the version number? - if it's v184.108.40.20603 then
you have installed
>the patch, and we have to look elsewhere for the problem
>if it's v220.127.116.113, then you need to install the patch.
> To install the patch, either visit Windows Update, or go
here, and download
>the patch for offline install
>Run the installer, and windows should reset System
Restore at the same time,
>clearing your old restore points (which wouldn't have
worked, anyhow), and
>creating a single new one.
>You should then reset the maximum allocation for SR by
going to the

sufficient for most

applications such as Office.
