It took me a liitle bit, but I finally caught on.

Win 8 x64: In order for this to work, you HAVE to save it in the SysWOW64 folder, and not the System32. I deleted the wmploc.dll in the system32 folder, but it kept coming back. Finally I deleted it, and took ownership of the same dll in the syswow64 folder. That did the trick!

Thanks for steering me in the right direction, though!!

Kudos for this!

I can change the image and I replace the dll file but it keeps reverting back to the original file. Any ideas?

mmm two possibilities :
-you modified the wrong file
-you replaced the wrong image in the dll file

looks like a mad utility, but not user friendly enough. you should get somebody to make something with a user interface etc, it would be awesome for people not experienced in computers to be able to use such a feature!

i just figured it out how...

step 1:
download res tuner
step 2:
go to windows/system 32 and open wmploc.dll with res tuner
step 3:
go to 257/5321.jpg and replace the background with a new one"must be a jpg 800x600px"
STEP 4:
SAVE IT AS wmploc.dll but save it in another location like desktop
step 5:
take control of the original wmploc.dll
step6:
Replace the original wmploc.dll with the modified copy (drag+drop and click "move and replace")
Step 7:
Open wmp

thanks!

Hey brother...finally got it. In regards to Windows 7 Ultimate, Version 6.1, Build (7600), 64-bit the files are located in the wmploc.dll in the 257 folder and the background is the 5321.jpg.

Thanks for the help.

If I ever figure out how to put a link in these massages I'll show you.

I can't find the 265 either. I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit retail version from MSDN. I have one that is 256 and one that is 257, and neither has files as high as 5321. I've scrolled through all of the files and can't find one that is 800x600. I'll keep looking and see if I can find a fix.

Okay, I've been looking for it. Let me see if I can get this (maybe I'll learn something new here) if not I'll put the dll on rapidshare in a day or two. Either way I'll get back to you.
