google it and you will easily find it. I had to download it for my XP and I just googled it. One of the first links.

Got it

Try the following. This should work. Just remember to run update as this version is quite old but it should work to get wmp11 back onto your system

that may not work i seem to remember you cannot reinstall the player
on Vista- that's not how the Vista component system works. You could
reinstall Vista, which will reinstall the player although if you have wiped it from the vista install cd you may have a problem!

That first download is for XP only. And the second does not install.

That's so stupid that you can't install it after. The one time in 5 years I actually need Media Player is a month after I upgrade to Vista.

I have an original Vista DVD with everything still on it, but it is way bigger then my "lite" version. Can I install the OS without erasing any of my files or programs?

I found this little tidbit:
Quote:
The counterpart of a repair install in Vista is to do an upgrade of the
existing installation. To do this you run the Vista DVD from the desktop of
the installed Vista OS, not by booting the DVD. Booting only gives you the
option for a custom (clean) install.

Yes it should preserve installed programs and data, however stuff happens so
make sure there is a backup of important data, and you have the original
installation media for all installed apps. I strongly recommend you use
something like Acronis True Image version 10 to image the system before
trying any repairs.

Also try system restore and startup repair, which is accessible by booting
the Vista DVD, before the last resort of an upgrade.

The upgrade process lays down a fresh image of Vista, then brings in
drivers, installed apps and data from the old installation.
