WMP not working for users, Enabled in AD Group Policy

12/14/2004 1988 views
Windows media player does not work for users who log in. They can see the icons and click it but the hour glass shows up a second then nothing happens.
It should all be enabled in Group policy but still doesn't work.

no its not that, its the application which doesnt run.
It works fine for power users or administrators.

ok, i don't know.
are you users connected to a domain?
If yes, did you try to run the application with a local user with NO adminrights?

Log in as an admin and run it...then log out and login as a user and try it.

If it runs as an admin but not a user then might have a permission issue.
