What is WMZ file?

WMZ file format is used by Windows Media Player software. This file format is used to store standard or custom graphical themes/skin files that can be used to change Windows Media Player interface style. WMZ file is a ZIP-compresed archive file and can contain one or more themes/ skins.

WMZ file structure

WMZ file comprises 2 distinct components – one is related to stored graphical data and the other to scripts written in JScript. The graphical component is responsible for visual style of Windows Media Player interface elements such as buttons. Script component describes behaviour of each element upon user’s actions, for example, adding an effect as a result of mouse hover over the element.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the WMZ file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the WMZ file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the WMZ file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the WMZ file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the WMZ file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
