  • Virtuozzo containers for Windows 4.6


Note that in Windows Server 2008, Windows Media Player 11 is a Desktop Experience component. Do not try to install it using the MSI package installer.

To install Windows Media Player 11 inside a container, open Server Manager > Features > Desktop Experience and install it. Restart the container when prompted.
After restarting, you will be able to see Windows Media Player in the Start menu.

Note: For Windows Server 2008r2, Desktop Experience installs Windows Media Player 12.
