Windows Media Player 11 does not get license from Windows Media 9 license server

I'm using a clean installation of Windows XP SP2 and Windows Media Player 11, when playing content that has been DRMed with a Windows Media 9 DRM license server, the media player does not get the license properly. After a few minutes, the window times out and does not get the license. If I do the same against Windows Media Player 9, or 10, it works properly.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Ensure you're current with Windows updates. Even if you're set to download and install updates automatically, it's still a good idea to run a manual Windows Update, check for Custom updates.

Thanks for the info, I'm running against a license server and not with individual files.

Couldn't find a fix for you.  You may want to check out MS's Windows Media Knowledge Center:
