Cannot Play ANY file on Windows 8

Post by alirezanoori »

I couldn't wait 'till October so I downloaded and installed the leaked version of Windows 8 N Enterprise. All my programs work except MediaMonkey. I cannot play ANY file. I tried several times, no luck! It's important to note that I have been using the ReleasePreview of Windows 8 for some time now and haven't had any problems with MediaMonkey. First I thought it might be a CODEC problem. I downloaded and installed the trial CODEC pack, it didn't help. I installed Winamp, it worked perfectly. I want my MM back :(

MediaMonkey doesn't support Windows 8 yet.

But it used to work on Release Preview. How come it stopped working on Windows 8 RTM? Is it because of the N version?

That shouldn't be a problem: simply install MediaMonkey on a supported and legally acquired OS.
