Library dissapeared and now I cannot add to library or share m

y attempt at "resetting" the library was to erase from "drive:\Documents and
Settings\user\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Media Player" all
files, then all files and folders including file "CurrentDatabase_360."

It was understood that WMP would rebuild files upon restart of WMP.
However, upon WMP restart, no files were rebuilt and no folders are retained
when added to monitored folders list.

I did not uninstall "Windows Media Format Runtime 11" at any time and now
cannot because WMP 11 must be uninstalled first.
WMP 11 will not uninstall now (does not disappear from Add/Remove programs
list).

Right, you would have wanted to rename the folder instead of erasing as you
suggested. You might want to try that instead. If you still cannot rebuild
the library at that point, that indicates a level of profile corruption -
this should work fine on your system for any other user.

What are the last 40 lines or so in c:\windows\wmsetup.log after your
uninstall attempt?

achd:
Wow, you were right.
The entire folder ":\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Application
Data\Microsoft\Media Player" was manually renamed and WMP 11 was restarted.
Upon WMP 11 restart, a new foler ":\Documents and Settings\User\Local
Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Media Player" was automatically created,
a new database within foldre was created, and my library of 14,000 songs was
rebuilt.

The file was opened, but, I do not have the expertise to find the location
of the 40 lines after the last uninstall occurred.

My thanks to you for taking the time to provide help.
I was completely lost and am sincerely greatful.
