    Windows Media Player 12 stopped working suddenly, wont play mp3 or wav

    I have WMP12 Win10 64bit.
    It was playing WAVs and MP3s fine, but suddenly stopped working.

    Cant find a WMP12 download anywhere to try reinstall.

    I also have asio4all on my computer but thats not active I believe.
    Groove Music plays all fine. Why has WMP12 stopped wortking?

    Why has WMP12 stopped wortking?
    well, sorry, my crystal ball is down for scheduled maintenance..

    You might get a clue from e.g. Reliability History (type Reli in Cortana search) and click on the red x's - see if any refer to WMP. The related data may give you a clue.

    Which is your Windows build? Win key + R, winver

    Here's what I'd do (I have build 1709 - may be different in 1803 if you have that):

    Try unchecking the box, restarting, checking the box, restarting and see if WMP works then.

    Otherwise- try using a system restore point created before this started happening.
    Have you made any changes? Received updates?
