Windows Media Player 11 is a version of Windows Media Player released in late 2006 for Windows XP Service Pack 2 and later, however, it originally required to have a genuine license of Windows in order to install it, and also it is not available for Windows Server 2003, but however, it is can be unofficially installed on Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 and later.[note 1] That requirement was later removed. It was also included in Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008.
Installation[edit | edit source]
This version of Windows Media Player requires validation of the installation of Windows XP or Windows Server 2003. It will open Windows Product Activation where the user must activate the installation. The validation however can be bypassed by extracting the installer file and executing the included installer for the Windows Media Player, the Windows Media format runtime and the User-mode Driver Framework.
