Windows Media Player may erroneously deliver the message “Your computer is running low on memory. Quit other programs, and then try again” when attempting to play DVDs, stored movies or other media. This message can be the result of an unregistered Windows Media Player .dll instead of an actual scarcity of memory.
To fix this issue, follow these steps:
- Launch a commpand prompt in administrator mode. Navigate to Programs > Accessories > then right-click “Command Prompt” and select “Run as Administrator”
- Copy and paste the following command: for %a in (%systemroot%\system32\wm*.dll) do regsvr32 /s %a into the command prompt.
- Press enter and wait for the command to process.
After performing these steps, re-attempt usage of Windows Media Player.
