Windows 7: Problem Saving Playlists in WMP 12

Problem Saving Playlists in WMP 12

So... every time I try to save a playlist, I get an error:

"Windows Media Player encountered a problem creating or saving the playlist."

(Hmph, I've gotten it so many times I memorized the damn thing... )

Anyway, I'm using the RC1, build 7100 right now. I've no freaking idea what to do. I already cleared out %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Media Player\ and the %APPDATA%\Local\Microsoft\Windows Media\ folders.

At the very least, I got rid of 4 ghost playlists that were there. Just playlists sitting there that I had deleted already, would not go away... But gone now.

I figured out that the only problem is not being able to create playlists. I successfully added several playlists by making a new "blank" playlist in a text editor that had the proper format.

It's just a minor annoyance now that I can't create new playlists when IN WMP 12.
