    Cannot download windows media player 10

    I have tried to download wmp 10 but l keep getting error message "wm10.exe is not a valid 32application." I have removed all previous versions of the program. I have service pack 1. I am at a total loss as to the cause of this, any help would be appreciated.

    I have looked at another posting but this did not resovle the soution.
    Is there a reputable download site, except from microsoft ,as l cannot use this site due to using PC in libary as cannot get validation program to work

    1. There was a problem with the downloaded file and it may be corrupted...Download it again,

    2. You are attempting to install a 64 bit patch on a 32 bit computer...download the 32 bit version of the patch for a 32 bit computer.


    Also the very fact that you are trying to download from a Library PC. In my experience the Council Libraries lock down their PC's so tight you could get a cigarette paper in between the applications.....I speak from experience

    Windows Media Player 11 is now availiable to download. I did have 10 but I had to do a massive reformat at the weekend....and went to put media player back and the lastest version was 11.

    If media player 10 won't work without SP2, neither will Media Player 11.
