When installing the Windows Media Player Firefox or Chrome Plugin on Windows Server 2008, you receive the following error:

Package does not support server operating systems

I extracted the np-mswmp.dll from the installer package you can download from the link below.

To get windows media player working on server 2008 just copy np-mswmp.dll to one of the locations below depending on the browser you are using.

For Chrome plugin folder it’s in: %USERPROFILE%AppDataLocalGoogleChromeApplicationPlugins

For Firefox plugin folder is in C:Program Files (x86)Mozilla Firefoxplugins
