Windows Media Player 11 on Windows XP 64bit
Now I often get asked the question by many of my Windows XP friends.
"Can I get Windows Media Player 11 on Windows XP 64bit?"
For those of you who may not have a clue what Windows XP 64 bit is.Windows XP comes in 2 main editions which are: Windows XP Home Windows XP Professional
There are also versions such as XP Media Centre but this version is still built upon the same framework as Windows XP Pro. These operating systems run on what's called a 32 bit infrastructure. Now at risk of getting too techy for some folks I would recommend those who are interested go and check out the following resource.
