Windows Media Player encounters runtime error

Windows Media Player encounters runtime error

Windows Media Player encounters runtime error

With my Gateway Notebook PC, running Win 98 SE, 64 MB RAM, 333 MHz Celeron, I've encountered an error message. I had gone to a web site, and clicked on a link to play my Windows Media Player I got an error, "Player is selecting a runtime that is not valid for the media file type." The file type is .wma. The error message is that I've encountered error C00D10B0 while using Windows Media Player. (Additional information is not currently available for this error.) In Windows Media Player 7, Tools|Options|Format yields "Registry Error", then there are no file types shown. Should I try to use the file mp71.exe to reinstall Windows Media Player 7, or uninstall Windows Media Player 7 and then reinstall?
I had tried to update Windows Media Player to ver 9.00, but got some problems earlier and felt safer staying at ver 7.01.
