Fix WMP Utility is a free program for Microsoft Windows devices that attempts to repair Windows Media Player by registering all dll files again.
Windows Media Player is a build in media player for the Windows operating system. It has been improved by Microsoft in the company's operating system Windows 7, and is used by millions of users.
It can happen that problems occur that cannot be fixed that easily by the user as the media player is tightly integrated into the operating system. A standard solution that involves uninstalling and re-installing the media player is not an option at all for instance.
Fix WMP Utility is a repair tool for Microsoft's Windows Media Player. It addresses a common problem that Windows users experience: problems with dlls that are needed to operate the media player properly.
The portable program can be used to re-register more than 40 different dlls that are required to operate the Windows Media Player. This software program can be used to ensure that all the required dlls to run Windows Media Player are registered on the operating system.
It is clear from the description that Fix WMP Utility is not a tool to repair all issues that you may encounter with Windows Media Player.
The attempt to repair the program can be started with a single click on the "run utility" button in the program's interface. Please note that this can provide the means to repair Windows Media Player but that it can also have no effect if the problem is caused by something else.
All you have to do is wait for the program to register the dll files again, and test if it resolved the issue that you experienced when running Windows Media Player.
Fix WMP has been tested with Windows Media Player 12 running on 32-bit and 64-bit editions of Windows Vista and Windows 7. The developers say that it likely can repair previous versions of Windows Media Player as well.
I suggest you create backups before you run it on any Windows machine however just to be on the safe side of things.
