putting WMP 7.1 on Win95a??
« on: April 24, 2004, 05:04:20 AM »
Good morning,

I am using an aging Packard Bell 4610 Legend, Pentium, Mhz 120/72RAM, running Win95a with IE 5.01, SP#2.

Someone told me I might be able to download and use WMP 7.1 on my system even though it wasn't supported by Microsoft.  

I went to this site:

http://www.pppr.sk/rainbow/wmp71w95.html

and followed the directions but couldn't pull it off.  When I went to execute the batch file after unpacking the zip  files I got a message saying I was trying to install something that was not supported on my systam.  :-[

Just curious if anyone else has had any success in putting 7.1 on Win95.   ???

Thanks and regards,

Hi merlin,

Thanks for suggestion.  Just tried that site and when I tried to install the setup program the message about trying to install it on an unsupported operating system came up and wouldn't let me go any further.

I appreciate your help.  Guess I will stick with WMP 6.4.

Regards,
