I know, what kind of wicked mind would install WMPlayer on production enviroments, in this case because a third party aplication needed at server works using wmvcore.dll (we’re not amused),  so the patient details:

  • VPS running Windows Server 2012 R2 Standart (issues are known ussing N distributions)
  • Service Pack 1
  • Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU L5630 @ 2.13GHz – 2.13GHz
  • 4GB RAM (3.0GB usable)
  • System type: 64-bit OS

The solution

  1. Go to Server Manager window
  2. Select Server Manager (YOUR-SERVER-NAME)
  3. In the main window look for Features block
  4. Select “Add Features” option20140716-01
  5. Add Features Wizard window shodul display, select “Desktop Experience” option then click Next button20140716-02
  6. Confirm Installation to start(this could take a while)
  7. Restart your server and it’s done!
