I have recently installed WMP 11 on my windows 7 PC, and thought that the skin does not match the windows 7 look, so I have edited the files and have made it integrate more with the rest of the task bar. It also supports transparency so it will always be the same colour as the rest of your taskbar.
So heres the file and a screen of it.

If you find any bugs plz tell me, so that I can fix them but I have tested it and all seems good.
To install simply replace wmploc.dll in windows/system32 folder.
You will need to close the explorer process and run it again and also stop the windows media player sharing service.

For those of you that wish to have WMP11 on 64bit windows 7 here are the files with instructions and also the taskbar theme which I posted previously. The taskbar also functions properly.
