The problem seems to start if i double-click a file to play it (and it plays), close WMP, then double-click another file shortly after (or even a while after)..

The only thing I've noticed since RC was installed is that WMP will not reopen immediately after being closed (shows the same symptoms as the problem listed; appears to attempt to I figured that the uninstall was impossible and never tried again.

Sunday, June 21, 2009 1:56 AM 0 Sign in to vote I can't say I've had this problem since doing a clean install of RC. Personally, on my system (AMD phenom x4 9600, 4GB ram, Asus m3n72-d, SB Audigy (also happens with built in sound card) running Win & 7600 x64 and up to date) WMP I bought Windows 7 Professional, and MS Office 2007, hoping to get around a lot of the problems with Vista, but I've had these problems ever since I clean installed the I would doubleclick the file, normally it would play immediately, but when the problem occurs, it would pause then the dreaded message.

I will let you know if that works. I narrowed it down - that it only occurs after the machine has gone to "sleep" and been woken up - before that audio is just fine from Windows Media Player.

Woop woop http://www.thewindowsclub.com/repair-fix-windows-7-vista-problems-with-fixwin-utility Monday, December 06, 2010 7:26 PM 0 Sign in to vote Similar behavior, here is How I dealt with it: - Win 7 Ulitmate/64 bit. However, unlike others, I can open WMP afterwards. That might not fix it, but -- it does avoid a full re-install if that's the path you wanted to take.What happened before this started happening?Does "sfc /scannow" from "cmd.exe" run Tuesday, August 17, 2010 4:32 PM 0 Sign in to vote Thank you this help`d me a lot.

Sorry, there was a problem flagging this post. I figured out that the Mcafee antivirus had been uninstalled but there were some "leftovers" (Some services were still running). I can right click the file and open with VLC and would play immediately.

But recently I have received notification on updating the program. You can try turning OFF Automatic Update;Start\Settings\Control Panel\Automatic Updates\Turn OFF automatic updates.Reboot and see if that helps.Bob Flag Permalink This was helpful (0) Collapse - Re: kernel32.dll- wuauboot error-mmtask error? The shell is operating at a lesser privilege level, and thus cannot talk to the Player run as administrator. Have you tried running "sfc /scannow" from cmd.exe run As Administrator?If you detach everything detachable, does it still hang?

I'd love to know what app/scenario is causing that. nothing happens at all not even that message (server execution failed.) then when i click on individual files such as: mpg's, avi's or mp3's that message comes up "server execution failed"  Restart computer 7. Alternatively, some programs, notably PC games, require that the DLL file is placed in the game/application installation folder.

Hope there's a fix! After I closed that message, and tried again, it always played ok. Marked as answer by Carey FrischMVP, Moderator Saturday, February 26, 2011 7:49 AM Monday, February 01, 2010 9:44 PM 0 Sign in to vote Here's what I did, and it solved

Simply playing media in WMP will auto-catalogue that particular file w/o all the 'fancy-dancy' gui that WMCentre is full of.

  • I have also had some luck with closing the wmplayer.exe file in task manager, and try it again and it will work most of the time.   my system specs are:
  • This is where I would start personally based on past experiece with Vista.
  • Then type the following command: regsvr32.exe jscript.dll and press Enter.
  • You probably would want to run the uninstall again and then look at the tail end of c:\windows\logs\cbs\cbs.log (potentially only accessible as administrator).

  • A reboot seems to fix the problem, but it comes back later for no apparent reason.
  • I smell a CPU bug.

I couldn't remove WMP from Windows instalation and I haven't tried a full Windows reinstall.I never enabled media sharing. Anyway I found a fix for my problem, after a loooooonnnnnggggg time searching the net with no decent answers. It is still turned off.The problem happens even if energy saving features (such as sleep) never occurs.I also note that Media Center works fine, as well as the WMP preview on by R.

And although "Google is my friend" this time it can't cough up the correct solution. You probably would want to run the uninstall again and then look at the tail end of c:\windows\logs\cbs\cbs.log (potentially only accessible as administrator). Started happening with RC, but initially was somewhat random. If anyone wants to try to get it to work, here is the patched file (http://www.mediafire.com/?5wmz22moo4z).

On 02/12/2010, an automatic Windows Update seems to have solved the problem. However I did not run the "System File Checker Utility" I went straight to the "Windows Media Button" and it repaired everything.

Then I tried FixWin, used the WindowsMedia Player does not start... Actually, I'm most suspicious of the UPNP call having something to do with this, as I recently changed my network configuration to use a new UPNP device, and also set up I also highly recommend that whatever you try, you don't attempt to replace the ole32.dll file in C:\Windows\system32. Friday, February 12, 2010 6:02 PM 0 Sign in to vote I'm also having the same problem, ever since I installed Windows 7 -- clean 64 bit install, with all drivers

I used to use Skype for a long time without problems. However I did not run the "System File Checker Utility" I went straight to the "Windows Media Button" and it repaired everything. I only just bought this PC with windows 7. Anyway, after all this the problem continues.By the way, I had to prevent KB977074 from running on Windows Update.
