I have begun working with Vista and Media Player 11 just recently. I've been noticing strange startup issues, which may be related to our enterprise software, which was all built for 2k/XP. Anyway, I have a Media Player event in the logs I would like to share and catch opinions about. I googled a bit, but could not directly find a clear answer for this. Also, I do not know of any DRM-protected files on my PC, so I cant test whether or not MP11 can play them.
Event ID: 14344
Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service
A new media server was not initialized because WMCreateDeviceRegistration() encountered error '0x80070057'. The Windows Media DRM components on your computer might be corrupted. Verify that protected files play correctly in Windows Media Player, and then restart the WMPNetworkSvc service.
Thanks for your time!
