I thoughtlessly accepted the wmp update, upgrading to v10. I thought I had
v9 backed up, but didn't. Can someone post the last version of v9 in an
appropriate group so that I can get it back?

Your question can best be answered by reposting in the

Thanks Carey, I didn't know there was one. My server lists so many ms groups
that I had a hard time finding this one.

And for clarification here (since it is an XP group...), you cannot install
v9 on top of v10. The installer will not let you do that - you just need to
use the rollback point WMP10 offers in Add/Remove Programs, and that will
roll you back to v9 (or whatever your previous version was).
