    Running Tiger on 15" PB 1.5

    I reinstalled WM Player no change. What is confusing it? Should I chuck prefs away (bit os9! : ) )

    Permissions ...?

    :confused:

    I had this exact problem after upgrading to Tiger. It turned out that WMP actually has TWO preference files; one's a standard .plist, but there's a second (also in the user prefs folder) with no extension that also needs to be deleted to get it working again. Do that and you should be back in business.

    Thank you very much! This worked perfectly for me.

    If other people are curious, the two files are:

    com.microsoft.mediaplayer.plist
    Windows Media Player Prefs
