You need FFmpeg Decoder Wrapper and FFmpeg binaries. If you have 64-bit OS you can use 64-bit ffmpeg.

Navigate to the component's configuration: Preferences -> Playback -> Decoding -> FFmpeg Decoder Wrapper.

At the bottom "FFmpeg installation folder" section browse to the bin directory of the extracted ffmpeg archive.

Then hit Add at the top. Enter WMA for format name and *.WMA for file type mask. If you wish you can enable the "Show codec names from FFmpeg" option. I seem to have enabled the chapter support setting too but I'm not sure if the format supports chapters.
