Windows Media Player 10 DRM issue

  iminton 22:03 22 Nov 2005

I have recently bought music from and upon downloading found that Windows Media Player 10 has asked for a security upgrade. I agreed, although I knew that my PC was up to date with Microsoft updteas having chosen that in Xp SP2. The message came back saying that the upgrade had failed, with a code C00011CD which meant that media PLayer didn't know why it had failed. This also killed all my previous purchases from mycokemusic. I have tried yo upgrade DRM licenses from microsoft via their website but this still gives the same issue. I've reinstalled Media Player and SP2 but to no avail. mycokemusic have supported me though this but we still havent resolved it - does anyone else have this issue and has found a solution?

DRM is a killer. If anything goes wrong with the licences the media is useless. The licences do not come from Microsoft but from It is intended, and it does, make sharing or copying nigh on impossible.

Like you said, one glitch and the music is gone. Even when it works it will only play in MP10 so you can't download it into your MP3 player even though you paid for it.

You could try contacting but I doubt they'll help.

My advice avoid any site that uses DRM like the plague. Before paying for a membership or downloading anything contact the webmaster and ask if he uses DRM, if he does tell him, very politly, where to stick it.

There was a MS Update(KB 902344) for WM Players using DRM but it wouldn't update unless you had System Restore running, don,t know why, might help.

I've tried downloading and installing the KB902344 patch but no further luck. mycokemusic are trying to help and have so far been supplying good advice, but they haven't resolved the issue.
