    Hi,

     

    I think you can rebuild solution with X86 option.

    Applications built with X86 option will run as 32-bit process on 64-bit OS under WOW64. If it is not necessary to run application as 64-bit process, we can build solution with x86 option so that it can run on 64-bit OS.

     

    More information, please refer to /platform

     

    I hope this can help you resolve the problem.

    Sincerely,

  • Hi,

    You can find 64 bit WMP.dll from the following location i.e. C:\Windows\System32. But please make sure that this path should be search in 64 bit OS(Windows) not in 32 bit OS(Windows). Moreover, you can also find 32 bit WMP.dll from the following location i.e. C:\Windows\SysWOW64.

    Hope that this will help you.

    Thanks and Regards!

    Fahad.
