Windows Media Player Error!

By stakieg ·
What does it mean when an error pops up that says: Wmp has caused an error in rpcrt4.dll - If you continue to experience problems try restarting computer? I've restarted my computer and that doesn't help at all. Any ideas on how to fix this problem? I'm running a windows ME.
Thanks

I suggest you upgrade your media player to a newer version it's available for download at microsoft site. If you still encounter the same problem after that let me know.

I already had wmp 9 series but i re-downloaded anyway. That didn't seem to help. I still got the same error message: "wmplayer has caused an error in rpcrt4.dll, windows will now close, if you continue to experience problems try restarting your computer" Restarting doesn't help. Any other suggestions? Thanks

Get the numerical ID of the error by clicking the More Information or Web Help button on the error message generated then go to this site for reference: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/9series/playererrors.aspx. Again tel me of the result.

nothing in the Windows Media Player 9 Knowledge Base on rpcrt4.dll errors.

visit: http://support.microsoft.com/ph/3170 for more on Windows Media Player 9.0.

you might consider getting rid of ME. July 11, 2006 is end of support on W9X including ME. This includes security updates so going with W2K/XP might give you a more stable O/S. In my opinion, ME is probably the most problematic and unreliable of all Windows O/Ss.

It's a driver problem. Either upgrade to XP or Downgrade WMP to older series, because some feature of WMP9 require XP.

u hv two options i.e. extract that file from WinME original CD using the command line provided (yes i cant remember it now someone can suggest)

Otherwise try to go to windowsupdate.com and let it scan and update whatever files need be updated
