If you want to use WMP with FLAC, try "Windows Media Player Plus!".

Sorry, but that's not correct. It's the WMP Tag Plus plug-in that adds FLAC library and tagging support to WMP.

Windows Media Player Plus! is a different WMP plug-in that adds various enhancements (unrelated to FLAC).

Sorry too (using foobar2000) ...
but is Windows Media Player Plus! enough to get FLAC support (besides other enhancements), does one need both plugins or at least WMP Tag Plus?

Neither add support for playing FLAC, if that’s what you mean. As Tim just said in both cases, only WMP Tag Plus is relevant, and it only allows one to add FLAC files to the library and work with their tags. To play FLAC with WMP, you’ll need a DirectShow filter such as those linked from the official FLAC site (Extras > Players and plugins > Windows).

Windows Media Player Plus! is *not* needed if you just care about FLAC support. If there's still confusion, then I suggest that you check the homepages of both plug-ins. The differences should become clear then.

Both those links are (long) dead. CoreFLAC can be found here. Surprisingly, judging from one of the comments, it apparently still works in Windows 7 despite last being updated in 2005, which was pre-Vista. Illiminable's DirectShow filters, I believe, were absorbed into Xiph; a package is available here. Xiph's is considerably more up to date so it is probably the way to go.
