Windows Media Player11 error code C00D1199

I have been emailed files with .wmv extensions and when I click on the file, and the WMP11 opens I get the following error message;
Windows media player cannot play the file. The player may not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file.

The error code associated with this message is C00D1199. I have searched for a solution through the MS website and was going to look for a codec offering through Google or Bing. I just want to play files like I used to. Do I have to go back to a prior version of WMPlayer? HELP!
