After installing Windows XP SP2 (RTM 2180)
I experience several crashes in various media player programs like windows
mediaplayer, winamp, mediaportal
all crashes occur in the wmvcore.dll.

When going back to SP1 the mysterious crashes are solved.
Also other ppl are starting to report the same problems with SP2
Is this a know bug in SP2? and ifso is their a fix?

Hello there,

It is possible that because of SP2 a "Call" to a procedure has changed or more
likly enforced. If so, when that call is made to an out of date codec or DLL
there would be a error. So, perhaps reinstall DirectX (current version is 9.0c)
and the pack of codecs for media player 9 might do the trick.

wmvcore.dll is a part of the Windows Media Player install,
not DirectX and not the codecs. Get your information
corret before telling people what they should be doing.

If you look at the release notes of SP2 then you'll see that it
contains lots of fixes for the media player and/or its components
The release notes cleary state that bugs have been solved in wmvcore.dll
However as said before this new version of this wmvcore.dll gives problems
in
several applications including microsoft windows player itself!

Also before posting this bug here, i had it checked by other ppl who
experience the same problems after installing XP SP2
when going back to SP1 the problems are solved

Hello there,

You are wasting your time posting messages in reply to "fix" she clearly has an
agenda of her own which has nothing to do with helping people.

It is nice to see though that your research supports my early thoughts.

Dear Frodo & Co,


We have with great interest followed your development of
MediaPortal and have acknowledged your high quality
programming abilities. We are in the progress of
developing a couple of "media features" and would like
you to give us an offer on our request.

We are a company located in Stockholm, Sweden and would
like to start a correspondance with our technical staff
and yourself or your appointed contact to discuss our
request.

The "media features" request is some standalone full
