FIX: The encoder cannot use the Windows Media Audio 9 Voice codec after you install Windows Media Player 11 on a computer that uses Windows Media Encoder 9 Series

SYMPTOMS
After you install Microsoft Windows Media Player 11 on a computer that uses Microsoft Windows Media Encoder 9 Series, the encoder cannot use the Microsoft Windows Media Audio 9 Voice codec. When you try to encode a stream by using the Windows Media Audio 9 Voice codec, you receive the following error message:
0xC00D0BC3: An unexpected error occurred with the audio codec.
CAUSE
The encoder shares some DLLs with the Microsoft Windows Media Format 11 Software Development Kit (SDK) Runtime that is installed when you install Windows Media Player 11. An updated component provides more data than the Windows Media Audio 9 Voice codec expects.
