Reinstall Toshiba Video Player for Windows 8

I did a stupid thing and uninstalled Toshiba's Video Player for Windows 8, before I realized that Windows Media Player does not play videos with Windows 8.  HELP.  Where can I go to download and reinstall Toshiba Video Player for Windows 8?

 

Thanks,

Mike

I downloaded the video player, but received an error message "PatchProject - IntallShield Wizard:  Can not find our player inyour system.  Installation aborted."  Any ideas what to do next?  Thanks again for your help.

My link was broken (I just edited the message). Was it this you tried to install?

 

   TOSHIBA VIDEO PLAYER

 

Please attach a picture of the error message.

 

Do you have Windows 8 or 8.1?

I just was able to get it.  I went through Toshiba Desk Top Assistant, then Toshiba Application and Driver Installer, and selected the video player.

 

Thanks again.

I'm having the same problem.  I'm trying to re-install Toshiba Video Player on a Toshiba Satellite laptop with Windows 8.1 and I get the message: "PatchProject - IntallShield Wizard:  Can not find our player in your system.  Installation aborted." Would one of you who has solved this problem please help me?

Re: Reinstall Toshiba Video Player for Windows 8

OK, I figured it out.  I had actually contacted your Tech Support folks and spoke with a Technician on the phone.  I had the Toshiba Video Player installed but it wouldn't play any DVD's I burned on this laptop.  He instructed me to uninstall the Video Player, then re-install it.  He told me to go through support.toshiba.com, then select "support", then select, "drivers & software".  Of course, this doesn't work.  The only way to get Toshiba Video Player re-installed is to go through Toshiba Application and Driver Installer which can be found by searching. 

I've re-installed it so now I'll try to use it.
