Installing WMP11 without genuine advantage or validation check

Category : Windows

We all know when installing windows media player 11 you need to validate your copy of windows xp. Or at least you will know when trying to :P. And if you for some reason fails that validating, you can’t install it. Now here is how to bypass that 🙂

1. Download WMP11 from FileHippo:

2. Extract the .exe file somewhere:

Left click on the wmp11-windowsxp-x86-enu.exe, and select Extract here, or someplace you want. Using WinRar or some other program.

3. Run wmp11.exe:

This is actually the install of the wmp11 without validation 😛

Running this file will bring the installation window for wmp11 right up. And now it’s just to follow the steps from there.

4. Reboot and finished!

Yes, at the end of the installation in step 3 it tells you to reboot. So just do that, and when it’s back up again you got a fully working windows media player without having to hassle with the validation.

EDIT: Might also add this, on some systems you need to run the other exe files in the setup package.
