    Here are a few simple steps that should help you fix the problem opening Windows Media Player Vista.

    Incompatibility with the Adobe Shockwave Flash format may cause Windows Media Player 11 to crash, freeze, or be unable to open on Windows Vista systems. Microsoft has released a cumulative update that resolves most of these science-based issues for both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the Windows Vista operating system. Applying these updates may restore the functionality of Windows Media Player and may also resolveThere is a critical security check issue that could expose your computer and other sensitive files stored in your organization to an online threat.

    General Symptoms

    1. In addition to being unable to start, one of the primary symptoms of this vulnerability is some sort of corruption in the media library that is running multiple instances of Windows Media Player (WMP) 11. After reopening WMP 11, your library will be empty until you again, do not scan your computer for media files. Even running the standalone version of WMP 11 on a web phone with built-in WMP can damage your media library. Windows Desktop Search may also close when trying to index files in the media library.

      Microsoft provides fixes for this vulnerability for both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows Vista. It is imperative that you download the correct patch for the operating system installed on your computer. To determine your version, simply click the Start button and open anyThere are Control Panels. Also click System Maintenance, then click Select System. Information about your system is in a new system field. Once you’ve checked the version, download and install the correct patch for your system from the links in each Resources section.

    Side Effects Of Some Security Fixes

    1. cannot open windows media player vista

      While I would argue that the Microsoft-provided software fix reduces the security of the venerable presence in WMP 11, it’s not free. After updating, Shockwave Flash (SWF) files no longer open in standalone or web-based versions of WMP 18. When you try to open the SWF folder, a message prompts you to update the Shockwave Flash Player update.
