Q) I'm getting an Error Message that says I'm missing a core DLL file. What's this mean?

  • A) It means that you do not have a version of Windows Media Player that will support WMA files.

Sports Sounds Pro uses a file called basswma.dll, this is an extension to the BASS sound engine, enabling the playback of WMA files. Sports Sounds Pro requires the Windows Media Player modules for version 7.1 or later, these come installed with Windows Media Player, or they can be installed separately. If you are getting an error message telling you that you are missing a core dll file, then you do not have a version of Windows Media Player that will support WMA files. There is no need to download an update to Windows Media Player although it is available free from Microsoft. You can install the required Windows Media Player files which are contained in the self-installing WMFADist.exe file by clicking here. (CLICK HERE to download WMFADist.exe).
