Trying to install MPSetup in POL on FC30




I choose the wmp9 install, and the following can be seen in /home/username/.PlayOnLinux/ressources :

-rw-rw-r--. 1 username username     1272 Jun  4 19:31 MPSetup.exe

Which is much too small. The contents of the MPSetup.exe are:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "">
<html xmlns="">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"/>

POL is attempting to fetch from (from POL_Install_wmp9):

POL_Download_Resource "" "e919c4e0050b32aebe83a5d2eb613dd4"


Hope this is enough of a report. Maybe MPSetup.exe (wmp9) moved on MS Site.

You are right, the link to the file is broken in the script.


We will have to find the new link, and if possible the file with the same hashsum (MPSetup.exe e919c4e0050b32aebe83a5d2eb613dd4)


Help (to find it) would be welcome.

So far I only found a japanese version at:


Clearly not the same MD5, and the installation is indeed in japanese. Going to keep looking, I guess this stuff may eventually just be gone :(

A quick solution:

# cd ~/.PlayOnLinux/ressources/
# wget

Thank you Yaolt !.  I could not refind this file on the web.
