Hello Forum!
I am trying to set up Microsoft Media Player on a computer with the following Operating System:

Windows Server Enterprise
Copyright 2007
Service Pack 2

Here is my catch 22. It seems that this OS does not come with a Media Player and the only compatible player would be the Vista version; but Vista comes with Microsoft Media player. So Microsoft does not have a Vista version of Media player available on their web site.

How do I get Microsoft Media Player on Server 2008?
