Trying to load Windows Media Player 11 in XP OS from command line, play a Playlist, and close the WPM window when the Playlist is finished.  

Used the syntax in the MS example at the following link but with no success.          http://support.microsoft.com/KB/241422

Also tried several other combinations of /Play /Close parameter options, again with no success.  Not sure what the problem might be.
