Windows 7: Windows Media Player 12 bug?

Windows Media Player 12 bug?

Hello SevenForums.

I am using Windows Seven since the RC 7100 was downloadable.
But I encountered a problem like 3 or 4 days ago. I saw that when I am playing to something and wanna listen music at the same time (whether the media player is on mini mode or full mode): when I want to change the song by pressing on my keyboard's button, the media player suddenly comes back on the screen and my game goes in the taskbar.
It dit not do that with that crappy vista.

Someone has an idea?

Thanks.

Have you loaded an driver and/or utility software for your keyboard? The bug could be there, and not with WMP12 or Windows 7.

I mention this, because I'm using a standard media keyboard, and have the normal Windows 7 supplied keyboard drivers running the show, and I have not had a problem such as you have mentioned, and I've been using 7 since the BETA Build 7000...

Thereis an utility. This is a razer keyboard, so I loaded their program. I'm gonna try with the default driver.

EDIT: What a faggot. ><

I AM PEBKAC.

There is an update for this driver available on razer's website.

You really should give Media Player 12 a chance. Since Version 11, it's been the only player I've needed...

only thing thats changed from media player 11 is that everytime you open it it updates your music, even if you didnt add anything. Not an issue but wonder why WMP11 never used to do it?
