    ..wmv files will not play directly from my email attachments but they will
    play when I save it to my desktop. I tried the troubleshooting suggestion on
    the Windows Media website. i.e. go to tools, options, file types and
    de-select midi file, click on Apply. then re-select midi file and click on
    ok. But that did not fix the problem.

    It won't work, then. There's something in how the program is handing the
    link off to WMP that WMP doesn't like. You don't mention the email
    program - I believe some use a protocol/method/somesuch that WMP doesn't
    understand. =\
