Howdy folkes

I just recieved my macmini today.

Anyhoo - one of the first pieces of software that I need is Windows Media Player for a music website that i frequent quite regularily.

My problem is that my mini won't install/open the ".sitx" file that is Windows Media Player. When I double click the ".sitx" icon to install Windows Media Player - nothing happens.

any thoughts on how i can get it installed?


thanks in advance

You need to download Stuffit.

"You need to download Stuffit."

I am used to Stuffit being included with store bought Macs (at least from my experience)
