    Did Media Player work before you installed the Yahoo program? If yes then
    it appears that one of the DLLs used by Media Player was replaced with a
    version of that is incompatible with MP.

    I didn't try playing WM files in WMP11 before installing Yahoo (I'm a Yahoo
    subscriber, so I had to install Yahoo to download the licenses for my music.)

    However, now it appears not even Yahoo will play my WMA files. Most puzzling.

    MP3s play fine.

    WMP11 on Windows XP had a tool to repair your Windows Media installation.
    Does such a tool exist for Windows Vista?

    Same problem here on 5384 (B2). I can't play some WMV files with the same
    error...

    I don't know what I did or didn't do, but today, I launched WMP, it did some
    crazy installation thing relating to URGE, and my WM files work now.

    All's well that ends well, I guess.
