Stop media player being pinned to windows 7 taskbar

CaptureAnother of my little Windows 7 deployment annoyances has been the fact that windows media player is pinned to the new taskbar by default, and with windows 7, it’s not possible to programmatically add or remove pinned items from the taskbar.

After a while of script hunting for something that might get around this, I found out that there is an option that can be used in the unattended xml file will stop it from being automatically added!



In windows system image manager, add the following under phase 7 (OOBE):

   Windows shell setup >> Windows Features >> ShowWindowsMediaPlayer >> false
