SYMPTOMS

You may experience one or more of the following symptoms when you use Microsoft Windows Media Player 11.

Symptom 1

Consider the following scenario. You are using an application that is registered to receive clipboard viewer messages. The application receives clipboard viewer messages by using the WM_CHANGECBCHAIN notification through the WindowProc function. In this scenario, if Windows Media Player is running, the application does not receive clipboard viewer messages. When you close Windows Media Player, the application still does not receive clipboard viewer messages.

Symptom 2

Windows Media Player 11 does not share .dvr-ms files. When you use the Media Sharing feature in Windows Media Player, .dvr-ms files that you recorded by using Windows Media Center are not shared to digital media receiver (DMR) devices.

CAUSE

Cause of Symptom 1

Windows Media Player does not correctly handle WM_DRAWCLIPBOARD messages. Additionally, Windows Media Player does not correctly remove itself from the clipboard chain.

Cause of Symptom 2

Changes were made in Windows Media Player 11. These changes do not allow for .dvr-ms file sharing.
