Additional Comments

I had been test Windows XP version. To run this program, extract exe file of this (for example, with WinRAR program), run all exe files (but don't run setup_wm.exe), last file will be wmp11.exe. I don't know why, but umdf.exe doesn't install! After this, set Windows version as 2000 in winecfg program to pass verifity. Run program. When it freezes, run "wineserver -killall". Set Windows version as XP. Run WMP. To see all window, put native jscript.dll in ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32 or in '~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Windows Media Player'. After 5 seconds of loading you will see freezed program. Movie Maker 2.6 is freeze too (after 5 seconds). To fix WMP, press Ctrl + 2 when it starts, it will set on skin. Close the window. Run wineserver -killall. Run program again. You can disable skin, but you need enable it to run WMP again. To better view you need gdiplus.dll (you can find it in Microsoft Office directory). mp3 files doesn't sounds (I have installed libmpg123 1.9.0 and compiled Wine with this), wmv is corrupted.
