Windows Media error message MediaPlayer

Recommended Posts

Windows media player works fine in my Administrator account, but in another account on my Win10 PC, every time I log in I get the message 'Windows media player cannot play the video because there is aproblem with your video card.'

 

Then I have to close this then reopen MediaPlayer.

 

This is a peculiar thing with this software, which I like. 

Anyone know how to fix this, as everything I've tried does not work.


Thanks

Have you tried using another media player like VLC ?

I suspect you may have "permissions" problems if it works for admin account but not for "normal" account...if you find the mediaplayer.exe file and right click "run as" admin does it work ?

I prefer to use GOM player. Works with all files never had a problem.

Where is the mediaplayer.exe file?

I can't find it in Win10.

Not sure of exact location...but you may have to enable "show hidden and system files" to find it ...also maybe called mplayer.exe or some such ...from my dodgy memory....if you have a desktop icon for media player then right click and select properties...it should tell you the filename and location.

"C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player\wmplayer.exe"

That is where mine is located on my Win10 PC.
