    Actually, you don’t even need WinRAR. Just run the .exe with /?

    You’ll see the options available.

    Running it with /T:C:\wmp11 /C will extract the files to C:\wmp11

    For those users who still gets the error “media player is asking for validation” even after the given suggested steps above. Please do this-
    As mentioned in step 3 above, copy that DLL file and paste it to C:\program files\windows media player\ folder and try to run WMP 11.

    it should work.
