    Windows Media Player 11 and Profiles

    We are using Mandatory profiles for our students and we have now found a reason to move to WMP11.

    However, every time they login - it runs through the initial setup each time.

    How can I get around this - I've used an MSI packager to track changes and have updated the profile with registry entries but no matter what I do - it keeps kicking off.

    Any ideas?

    Check out this

    I modified the default (software) registry file accordingly, and works a treat..

    You could also push out a GPO with per computer settings for WMP
    Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Media Player
    and enable "Do Not Show First Use Dialog Boxes"

    That's great - I ended up using GPO instead - no idea why I didn't think of that... probably losing it
