Default Windows Media Player

I'm havin' a problem with my Windows Media Player, I can't find a shortcut for it, and I can't create a shortcut for it. Where's the default location for Windows Media Player? I can load Windows Media Player if I load a music file, but I don't like having to go to My Computer then to my Music Partition... How can I get the Shortcut?

That's where I thought it was, but the only app there is Setup_wm.exe, no Wmplayer.exe, I have used the "Search" method and couldn't find it before.

I have tried, but when ever I use Setup_wm.exe, it says, "Unable to find updates" It works perfectly fine, but I can't find "Wmplayer.exe."

Edit : Just remembered, I have a dual boot system with Windows XP Home and XP Pro, copied the WMPlayer.exe from Home and put it on the Pro drive.

Install Windows Media Player 9 or 10 instead.

I have Windows Media Player 9 already, and don't want to download 10, but luckily, I have already figured it out, but thank you for your input. :P
