    I was upgrading to WMP 9 - win 2000 13.3mb.. but it loops
    on downloading the 9 files over and over. when it
    completes the long download, it doesnt install, but goes
    back to the user agreement again .. i decline, it shuts
    down and i cant access WMP, or If i accept, it begins to
    install the 9 files again... this seems a continous loop
    as it has done it 5 times now!!

    Ive tried going into folder and using setup file.. same
    thing...

    How the heck do I break the cycle and just load it once
    and for all????

    Thanks
    Lea

    You should be able to set
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\WindowsMediaPlayer
    registry value "GroupPrivacyAcceptance" to the REG_DWORD value 1, and then
    things should likely work. (You will need to create this registry key and
    value.) This means that you are by proxy accepting the Privacy Statement
    and other such configuration information for the users on the system.

    However, they (and you) will be able to go to WMP's Tools:Options:privacy
    menu and Tools:Options:Media Library menu to further modify the privacy
    settings as desired.
