I’m not sure how many of you actually use Nokia/Ovi music player but personally I use it transfer music to my phone as well as Metadeta collection for tracks. Overall it’s a ‘decent’ app in my opinion even though it does take ages to start-up, Nokia has pushed out a new update to version 2.5.11021 which doesn’t seem to change a whole lot except the name, which is all part of Nokias rebranding scheme to get rid of the ‘ovi’ name.
Problem is this update seems to have ‘broken’ the player for me, as it no longer starts up. I keep running into an endless error loop between ‘Nokia Multimedia Component Installer’ and ‘Nokia Multimedia Component Uninstaller’. I tried uninstalling the player completely but still no effect, so i’m not sure if it’s a corrupt installer file or my computer is just acting screwy. Was anyone able to get this update up and running???
EDIT: One of our readers ‘N8’ tipped us sown below that to get it working firs uninstall “Ovi Music Player” as well as “Nokia Multimedia Common Component” then run the installer file (select to install all files)~ May or may not require reboot. Cheers.
*Good News- After getting it to work, it quite obviously opens up MUCH MUCH faster no more waiting a full minute before it starts.
