How to make HE-AAC audio to work in WMP?

Does anyone know how to install and get the Orban / Coding Technologies AAC/aacPlus(TM) Player Plugin(setup_AAC_aacPlus_pluginbase_1_1_52.exe) to work?

I have a video file with HE-AAC audio that won't play on my WMP, or VLC, but it does play using MPC.

I've done the following:
1) Downloaded the setup_AAC_aacPlus_pluginbase_1_1_52.exe

2) Double clicked the .exe...I OK'd the licence box, and it installed.

3) Tried to play my file...video, but no audio.

4) I then found a forum that said 'To use a aac+ stream in WMP use 'icyx://ipnumber : port' (not http)'. I didn't know what that meant, but it looked like a web address, so pasted that into my browser, and I OK'd a permission box, which opened my WMP, with an 'updated' in the lower right corner.

5) My file still would not play audio.

6) Re-booted, WMP still won't play the audio of the video.

Anyone know how to get this to work? Are there LAV audio settings I need to change?

Win7, WMP 12.0.7601.23517 LAV Splitter

As a test, why not try transcoding the audio?

ffmpeg.exe  -i  video.mp4  -vcodec copy  -c:a aac  -b:a 96k  out.mp4

(While I generally frown on transcoding) if something as simple as that works, then you can deal more with specifics of your circumstances, or try to figure out why (VLC in particular) isn't liking your audio. (I know nothing of WMP & what it may or may not be able to handle.)
