cFos ADSL connection crash with the MediaPlayer7.01, Help!

My ISP is using cFos connection software to emulate a COM port for the ADSL broadband service.  But
after the cFos is installed, the Media Player stop working.  Every times the MPlayer is initiated, error
message of "Assert Failed!" pop up.  That problem have made me unable to see any on-line videos.  Other
than this, the connection speed is quite OK, often up to 1.5kbps.  
So can u provide any solution ??

It sounds like your cFos software is replacing a necessary component/library/dll that is required by media player - what happens if you re-install media player after you get your cFos connectrion working?

If you run one of the many install "trackers" out there, you will probably be able to determine which file your cFos software is replacing that breaks media player...

Have you done the appropriate searches on microsoft and google to see if anyone else has encountered this problem?


Man, your profile is classic - I almost fell out of my chair...

Please stick to just one thread for this question,
DW - you are attempting to greatly exceed your authority on this site - are you a moderator, and can accordingly make such judgements about which duplicate questions to close and which to leave open?

Proper site etiquette in this case would dictate that you point out this duplication to the folks in CS, but instead you had to violate the AUP and act silly (actually, doubly so, since you removed *both* posts from the active list).  As such, I must object to the proposed "answer" - I am still willing to help in either thread, or at least until the *appropriate* folks intervene [CS].



This question appears to be abandoned. I will allow one week before I close this question
