Windows Media Player Error Message Help

You've encountered error message C00D0FD6 while using Windows Media Player. The following information might help you troubleshoot the issue.

Damaged or incompatible plug-in

Windows Media Player was not closed properly. A damaged or incompatible plug-in might have caused the problem to occur. As a precaution, all optional plug-ins have been disabled.

If you enable optional plug-ins and the Player continues to close unexpectedly, it is recommended that you identify the damaged or incompatible plug-in and remove it.

 To troubleshoot plug-ins (basic)

If the previous procedure does not solve the problem, the damaged or incompatible plug-in might be a digital signal processing (DSP) or rendering plug-in. Because these plug-ins cannot be completely disabled, for troubleshooting purposes, you must remove them instead. Before you remove a plug-in, verify where you can reinstall (add) it from later.
