BTW, any way to "un-install" or revert back to the original behavior, so that I might try it without any issues?
I think a restore point before the installation shud work.
The behaviour of WMP12 wont change an inch. Its just like having a very superficial addon. If u dont want it, then just ignore the "Windows Media Player" link in the "Toolbars" of the taskbar context-menu.
There IS an uninstaller in it. But plz DONT USE IT. I never corrected its code.
@guest_xibad (and to everybody in general)
To do the 64-bit installer I need someone with 64 bit vista and 7. Transfer required wud be around 40 mb and greater if s/he helps with testing. If interested then pm/email me from my profile page.
