Device Manager

As I followed the error message I opened my device manager and lo and behold both my sound devices are working.
Conclusion: The files I want to stream wont work in WMP, but they will work in RealPlayer,

Well i had some spare time, so looked into this file a little deeper,
sharemediacpl.dll is statically linked to the following files:
msvcrt.dll
ADVAPI32.dll
KERNEL32.dll
ole32.dll
OLEAUT32.dll
SHLWAPI.dll
SHELL32.dll
slc.dll
POWRPROF.dll
UxTheme.dll
GDI32.dll
gdiplus.dll
USER32.dll
DUI70.dll
ntdll.dll

maybe one of these files are damaged? do you use a modified UxTheme.dll?

I'm thinking you may need to reformat and do a clean install.
Its curious because I get an Appcrash with word.

@ Adrian>>I also think that is my next step. I've got this stream-lined version of Win7 installed. Think I'll remove it and go for the stock version rather.

I have the same issue - anytime I try to enable streaming media the windows explorer crashes. If I try to set the "Automatically allow devices..." in WMP (both the 32 and the 64 bit versions of the apps), then WMP crashes.

BTW, why is there a 32bit version of WMP in the 64bit OS? And why it is the default version? Shouldn't the 64bit be default?

Edit:
Should note that the HTPC (also win7) doesn't have these issues...

Ola,

Installed the full version of Win7 Ultimate this week. Working 100% now. Problem was definitely with the customized one.. everything is working very well now.

Viva Windows 7!!

Media Streaming

OK here goes, for those of you having Media streaming issues I've found that most registry cleaners cause an issue but I'm stumped if I know why??

Anyway if Media streaming or options stop working this is what to do:

Start menu click run

copy and paste this : regsvr32 /u wmnetmgr.dll

then goe to control panel / programs / windows features, uncheck the box Media Player and all the drop downs ie DVD etc, the computer will then ask to reboot, do this.

(all the feature of media player are still on your computer they just wont be active, so you notice any more space on the hard drive)

then when system is up and running go to start menu /run

coy and paste this: regsvr32 wmnetmgr.dll a noification will appear

go to control panel/ Programs / windows features re-enable media player and the bits from dropdown menu,

after its finished installing reboot your computer - to re-enable network links etc

and Bobs your uncle .... its working!

in the event this fails - yes you guessed it a clean install of windows 7
