    After following carefully the steps, and double click on wmplayer.exe I’m prompted with the error wmploc.dll, “found version when should be” as if it WMP 12 wouldn’t have been uninstalled, maybe…
    Many thanks.

    I have followed these steps, but when I run wmplayer.exe, I do not get the accept/decline screen seen in step 7. It only says thanks for installing. Upon rebooting in normal mode, when I run wmplayer.exe I get a message that says “Windows Media Player is not installed properly and must be reinstalled. Do you want to install the Player from the Microsoft Web site?” Any further assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    I will never buy Motorola again. No way…no how. EVER. Not after they did me dirty by releasing the Razr a mere month after i spent $300 on a VERY buggy Bionic. Unfortunately, I’m stuck with Verizon as I live in BFE, but I’m not thrilled that they cap our bandwidth usage, even though they aren’t the only major carrier to do so. The better part of 2012 is over. The world is changing. Update your infrastructure to support the increased data usage, that will only INCREASE. We deserve unlimited bandwidth. Limiting it kills the potential use of many features on smartphones.

  6. ich finde, das wichtigste argument der ganzen diskussion hast du nun in diesem post genannt: ich gönne es den firmen einfach nicht, umsonst werbung zu bekommen. alles andere (ihbah, werbung auf dem blog oder preisdrückerei) interessiert mich herzlich wenig. von daher: amen.

  7. EXCELLENT ! Je suis pas sûr que ça tienne très longtemps sur la longueur (le rockabilly est un genre un peu répétitif) mais la voix de la chanteuse est franchement énorme !

    The following time I read a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I mean, I know it was my option to read, but I really thought youd have one thing interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you might repair if you werent too busy on the lookout for attention.
