Windows Media Player


  • Why doesn't version 10 work with Windows 2000? Please give me an explanation and don't tell me to buy Windows XP because 2000 is better.

  • Hi Jimmy,

    This forum is for questions related to Media Foundation, which is the new multimedia SDK in Windows Vista. For your question, a better forum would be the Windows Media Player newsgroup or WMTalk mailing list at

    It takes additional effort to make a product work for every OS version. While it's great to see your enthusiasm for new media features offered by WMP10, unfortunately the intersection of users that are still using Windows 2000 and require the additional features offered by WMP10 is small (in relative terms, compared to Windows XP).
