Q. I have downloaded the Windows Media Player installer from the Microsoft website and I can not open the downloaded file which ends in a .sit extension and can not install the Windows Media Player.

A. If you are downloading Windows Media Player you will also need to download Stuffit Expander as Microsoft have used Stuffit to compress the installation file and Tiger now no longer comes with Stuffit.

Once you have expanded the .sit file you can then run the Windows Media Player installer.
