Simple Technique to Skip the Configuration Wizard on First Launch Of Windows Media Player

Whenever you install a new edition of WMP (Windows Media Player) or if you install a new OS, WMP shows a configuration wizard on its first time launch which allows you to configure the preliminary settings for your Windows Media Player. The same thing happens with WMP12 and WMP11 when you launch it for the first time.

You get a Welcome Screen which prompts you to make the preliminary settings depending on Custom Settings or Recommended Settings. Actually, you can make only a few settings through this wizard including playback file associations, default player, privacy and a few online store settings apart from accepting the End-user License Agreement for using Windows Media Player.

The wizard appears on each user account when the user launches WMP for the first time. However, if you happen to manage a number of computers and would like to apply the same settings everywhere by altering the group policy (GPO) or ISO image, you may pre-configure WMP.

 

The moment you configure WMP, it will not display any configuration wizard and will open the WMP user interface straightaway. In order to pre-configure WMP, you need to simply set the below mentioned registry keys in the system registry using the Registry Editor.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\WindowsMediaPlayer]

“GroupPrivacyAcceptance”=dword:00000001

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Preferences]

“FirstTime”=dword:00000001

“AcceptedEULA”=dword:00000001

You may copy the above mentioned registry keys to any text editor, save the text file with the extension “.reg” and run this .reg file for merging the respective registry values.

As another option, you may simply download the file “WMPConfig.reg from the internet and run it to apply the registry value to the system registry.
