Recommended Posts

Do you want to disable WMP or just remove the icon from the task bar? Here are some examples on how to disable WMP which also removes the icon from the taskbar.


To service an offline image, specify the location of the mounted image directory. For example, type:

Dism /Image:C:\test\offline /Disable-Feature /FeatureName:MediaPlaybackDism /Image:C:\test\offline /Disable-Feature /FeatureName:WindowsMediaPlayerDism /Image:C:\test\offline /Disable-Feature /FeatureName:MediaCenterDism /Image:C:\test\offline /Disable-Feature /FeatureName:OpticalMediaDisc

The same can be done to a live system, for example you can service the image at the time of installation with an answer file. for using DISM in setupcomplete.cmd like this.

Dism /online /Disable-Feature /FeatureName:MediaPlayback


Dism /online /Apply-Unattend:C:\test\answerfiles\myunattend.xml
