Mini Player toolbar missing from taskbar

    Just installed 64-bit XP Pro. On my 32-bit install when I minimized WMP11,
    the mini player would minimize to the lower right taskbar area without
    appearing in the regular taskbar area with other running apps.

    I can't for the life of me get it to do the same on 64-bit XP. What am I
    doing wrong? The only toolbars that appear in the toolbar menu are Address,
    Links, Windows Search Deskbar, Desktop, and Quick Launch.

    It seems that XP x64 doesn't include a 64-bit version of the WMP
    toolbar. You could try to get the 64-bit version of wmpband.dll from a
    Vista installation and register that in XP, but I'm not sure that this
    will work.

    Alternatively, you could download the Windows Media Bonus Pack for XP,
    which has a powertoy to control WMP from the system tray:
