I have just reinstalled everything, including Vista, and cannot get WMP to run .avi (films) files. I have WMP V.11 installed. The programme will play music, but not videos.

I suspect that it needs some codecs and have searched advice on the MS website and although there is much on WMP, I have been unable to find anything that might resolve this problem.

Everything was fine before the re installation and I have never encountered this problem before.

You need a codec package.
I recommend K-litehttp://www.free-codecs.com/download/K_lite_codec_pack.htm

Thank you both for your help. I installed the free-codecs.com package and all is now working okay. Many thanks..
