Microsoft has released Windows Media Player 11 (WMP 11) beta which is available for direct full download from Windows Media Player Download page (no validation required), or Microsoft Download Center (WGA validation required – for ways to bypass WGA validation, visit here). However, even if you managed to download Windows Media Player 11, there is a built-in WGA that check whether your Windows is genuine or not when trying to install as WMP 11 is designated by Microsoft for users running genuine Microsoft products or genuine Windows.

If you failed the WGA validation when installing Windows Media Player 11, you will get the following error message:

Setup cannot continue
One or more of the following problem has occurred during Setup.

Windows Genuine Advantage Validation

Setup was unable to validate that your copy of Windows is genuine. Click Finish to close setup and navigate your web browser to the Windows Genuine Advantage Website for additional information.

The best way to get Windows Media Player 11 beta to install, of course, is to get the Windows validated. However, for whatever reasons, if you still still want to install WMP11, there are workaround ways to bypass and disable the WGA validation check during setup installation process: (Not valid for the latest WMP11 final gold product, which need a crack legitlibM.dll. Visit here or comment 76 for crack instruction.)

  1. Download WMP11 from the Microsoft website stated above.
  2. Download WinRAR and install WinRAR extraction tool.
  3. Extract the WMP11 installer by using WinRAR or PowerArchiver to a directory (e.g. wmp11-windowsxp-x86-enu). You can right click on the setup file and choose any Extract option or launch the extraction utility and choose the WMP11 setup file to extract it.
  4. Download legitlib.dll_CRACKED.rar (legitlib.dll contained in RAR archive) and extract it.
  5. Copy the extracted legitlib.dll and paste legitlib.dll into the extracted directory of WMP11 installer. Overwrite any existing file.
  6. Run setup_wm.exe by double clicking.
  7. Install Windows Media Player 11 Beta accordingly

If you still having validation error, try to replace both LegitCheckControl.dll in \Windows\System32 directory and legitlib.dll. Cracked and patched version of LegitCheckControl.dll and legitlib.dll can be downloaded Windows_Media_Player_11_Crack.rar (links obsolete, check out crack method for WMP11 RTM Final or use registry hack to install).

Alternatively, some users reported that by split WMP11 installer into several setup components, it’s about to install Windows Media Player 11 proper bypassing the WGA validation:

  1. Same as above, extract WMP11 installer using WinRAR or PowerArchiver from wmp11-windowsxp-x86-enu.exe
  2. In the extraction folder, install (run) wmp11.exe and then restart Windows.
  3. Next, again in the extraction folder, install umdf.exe, wmdbexport.exe and wmfdist11.exe and then restart Windows.
  4. Using WinRAR or PowerArchiver, extract the contents of wmp11.exe
  5. Locate the update folder from the extraction from wmp11.exe and run update.exe inside the update folder.

If the above steps are not working and Windows Media Player 11 won’t play properly, try the following instructions:

  1. Rename wmplayer.exe in C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player\ folder to any other file name.
  2. Extract wmp11.exe which located inside your first WMP11 installer extracted folder.
  3. Locate wmplayer.exe from extracted wmp11.exe folder and copy it to the C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player\ folder.

It seems like there are many different sequences and steps to achieve the installation of WMP11 without WGA, another one as follow:

  1. Extract wmp11-windowsxp-x86-enu.exe
  2. Execute wmp11.exe from the extracted folder, and follow the instruction to install.
  3. Execute wmfdist11.exe and follow the instruction to install.
  4. Extract wmp11.exe
  5. Execute unregmp2 from the wmp11.exe extracted folder.

Or else, there are cracked or hacked version of no WGA Windows Media Player 11 installer where you can install WMP 11 straight away, even on non-genuine Windows XP or OS with validation errors or invalid product key. Download patched no-WGA Windows Media Player 11 Beta build 11.0.5358.4827 Windows_Media_Player_11.zip (links obsolete, visit download final RTM release of WMP11 and workaround to install WMP11). Extract the zip file and run setup_wm.exe to install WMP11 proper.

Above is WMP11 application specific way to crack WGA in order to download and install WMP11, another way is, of course, to make your Windows genuine.

    aawsome. copied the dll and it worked. thnx

  • Ben

    To Manu, your links to make Windows 100% genuine are bad. They probably got put down by Microsoft.

    Anyways, I followed this method and it worked.

    "This is what I did.

    1. download wmp 11 from microsoft (or let your computer download and install it for you).

    2. install it up until you get the window ready to validate your computer.

    3. open your install folder, usually c:/program files/windows media player/

    4. rename LegitLibM.dll to LegitLib.dll (just take off the ‘m’)

    5. continue with install (click validate)

    6. it will complain that you can’t be validate, but just click ok and keep going, and it will install fine."

    But I had to actually extract the setup file at first and then run wmp11.exe in there before so that LegitLibM.dll appeared in my program files folder.

    But whatever. Now it works. :)

    Thanks.

    A more easy way to hack WMP 11 is to go to WMP 11 folder and delete the file with an icon named setup_wm and close the folder afterwards open the folder and click straightaway on 'WMPlayer' icon which starts the WMP 11. The most simple method!!!!

    i stupidly updated my beta version of WMP11 forgetgin about the validation

    it installed but now i get a scren saying it needs to validate and when i click 'Validate' it doesn't work… not surprising

    i've tried renaming the legitlibm.dll file but no luck

    is there some way i can remove the installation?

    in add./remove programs it has WMP11 and WMP11 runtime which i presume is the installer, i can't seem to get rid of either of these

    For those having problems installing Media Player 11 due to the silly validation function, here is a full install without the operating validation process (it bypasses).

    Download, extract with WinRAR, password is wmp. Just run the setup_wm.exe file and install normally. Tested on WinXP, various configurations and systems, all worked.

    Choose one of the dl sites:

    some ppl are SO thick, if you cant do a simple thing get a legitimate copy of windows xp.

    Heres an EASY guide for those idiots:

    If you've already installed WM11 go to STEP 2.

    STEP 1: go to the old windows media player(WM10), go to tools–>options and click on 'check for updates once a day.' press apply and ok.

    after a short time a window appears asking if you want to upgrade to a newer version, click ok.

    let it download and install it, then after

    installation restart your PC.

    STEP 2:

    Start–>Search. click 'all files and folders' then search for LegitLibM.dll.(its in C:Program FilesWindows Media Player)

    After it is found, right click and rename it to legitlib.dll

    STEP 3:

    Run WM11, click on validate, it may say 'unable to validate' (but thats a fake message it still works, just click ok) then it will go on to settings and after you do that your ready to go!

    If it doesnt work then your not doing it right and you need to see a Dr ASAP.

  • Hacker (low class)

    If you cant download the lEgbit.dll file open the existing one in wm player eleven (11) folder with notepad.Delete everything inside notepad you see and save the file as all files like the other one legbit.dll (something like that).when you start installing it will say unable to validate and will install windows media player 11.

    a good trick by a low class hacker.

    Oh great! Another easy fix – keeping my fingers crossed that its as easy as you say!! Thanks,

  • admin

    Hi Adam and Nebula, mind to elaborate more about the steps? How do you bypass the WGA validation check during initial setup?

  • adam

    I already installed WM11, then found out about the validation thing, this method works perfectly without uninstalling:

    Go into my computer and search for this file LegitLibM.dll

    Then rename it to legitlib.dll

    thats it, it works!

    This is the easiet method as stated by NeBuLa_1979 :-

    Go into my computer and search for this file LegitLibM.dll

    Then rename it to legitlib.dll

    Thats it easy isnt it, enjoy. By the way, thank you NeBuLa_1979 for this great trick.

  • NeBuLa_1979

    rename legitlibm.dll in legitlib.dll after a complete normal installation procedure and it will work! Nothing else!

    The methos that uses the WINRAR method works but the file name is wrong, I had to delete the old one and add a 'm' in the file name.

  • geoshee

    yo man! thanks a lot. rockxp really works!. worked fine on my machine. bypassed genuine check nice and easy….;-)

  • Download WMP11 from the Microsoft website stated above.

    Download WinRAR and install WinRAR extraction tool.

    Extract the WMP11 installer by using WinRAR or PowerArchiver to a directory (e.g. wmp11-windowsxp-x86-enu). You can right click on the setup file and choose any Extract option or launch the extraction utility and choose the WMP11 setup file to extract it.

    Download legitlib.dll (in RAR format) from here, here or here and extract it.

    Copy the extracted legitlib.dll and paste legitlib.dll into the extracted directory of WMP11 installer. Overwrite any existing file.

    Run setup_wm.exe by double clicking.

    Install Windows Media Player 11 Beta accordingly

    Works with latest download but change legitlib.dll to legitlibM.dll ;)

    The file to be replaced after unrar is LegitLibM.dll not legitlib.dll.

    So, copy the file legitlib.dll in the install dir and rename it to LegitLibM.dll and it will work

    Just a question, I've installed the WMP11 Beta 1 before. So do I have to uninstall it before I can install the 2nd beta? And also, WMP11 is now published and is available for download in download.com. Could it mean the one in download.com is the final version? Thanks.

    3. Download a patched version of LegitCheckControl.dll with the LegitCheckControl.inf

    4. Replace the new files in Windows/System32

    "legitlib.dll" must be renamed to "LegitLibM.dll" for Beta 2 (overwrite file) .. the first method (obviously) works only for people that do NOT have windows validation installed on their box .. hope that helps ;) tnx 4 the article mydigitallife.info

    I personally reccomend the second method – manual installation. Works great…although I have a peice of advise;

    In my case, I could not manually open wmdbexport.exe. However, if all other steps are followed, everything will work fine.

I don`t know what to do.please help me :)

  • Jace

    does it make a difference that I'm using Windows XP MCE? because I can't get any of those to work and don't understand the last one all that well.

  • Administrator

    Hi Jace, a few things to check if your Media Guide or Radio Tuner doesn't work:

    1. make sure you're connected to Internet and your connection settings in IE is correct.

    2. check if you have turned off Active Scripting within IE's Tools -> Options -> Internet Options -> Security Settings dialog. It need to be enable for Media Guide and Radio Tuner to work.

    3. check if your security software such as Proximatron and AdSubtract break or block the Radio Tuner.

    4. check if your Group Policy or Local Policy (gpedit.msc) has locked the user into a skin using the "Set and lock skin" policy. This eliminates access to the Media Guide and Radio Tuner from within the player.

  • Jace

    is there a reason my Successful Windows Media Player Install can't connect to the Media Guide or Radio Tuner? all I can do is a blind search for music! Thanks in advance.

  • Thiago

    Congratulations!

    I've installed windows vista skin on windows xp and the only one thing that was remaining was to have media p 11!

    Thanks

    could you also tell me how to walidate my windows xp sp2

  • Administrator

    I did a search and most of the errors happens on wmplayer.exe, so I am not sure if the solution helps. Try to connect to Internet, and launch WMP11 right after install before you reboot your PC. If not, then try to execute wmfdist11.exe to see if it's working after that.

    You can also try to delete all files in Program FilesWindows Media Player, and reinstall WMP 11. Or try to run c:windowsinfunregmp2.exe /UpdateWMP from Run text box.

  • Dennis

    I have tried the first method a couple of times now, and it works almost perfect installing wmp 11. But when I try to start the progam afterwards, it says:

    "The file wmplock.dll has a version number of 11.0.5358.4827 where 10.0.0.3646 was expected"

    Doesn't that mean that it tries to recognize wmp 10? Can anoyone help me fix it.
