J7N is an unknown quantity at this point

I do not install Media Player every day. Therefore I don't know if the setup program compares version numbers and keeps the newest (in this case the not working version).

- Extract the MP setup pack (cabinet) with WinRar and see if some most important DirectShow files, like msdxm.ocx and quartz.dll match the ones in your system directory. If not, replace every file in System with the matching one you just extracted. You have no DirectShow now and have nothing to lose.

- Go to Windows System and run "regsvr32.exe /u <file>". Then run "regsvr32.exe <file>" for each file, where <file> represents one of the new files. This will re-register the new media components.

You need to shut down all programs except your file manager before you do this.
