Disable the Windows Media Player wizard on first run

Ever get annoyed that your users have to run trough the media Player 11 wizard, the first time they launch the program. Well I do, and in general my customers do to..

The fix however is quit simple. All you have to do is set the AcceptedPrivacyStatement key to 1 in the registry, under HKEY_CURRENT_USER

__________________________________________________________________________________________

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftMediaPlayerPreferences]
"AcceptedPrivacyStatement"=dword:00000001

_________________________________________________________________________________________

The obvious problem of cause, is the fact that the key is under current_user, which means that the user needs to be logged on to windows, when the key is added..  This can be automated by setting the reg key with  “Active Setup” which I will explain in my next post..
