FIX: Updates for Windows Media Player 9 Series and for Windows Media Player 10


SYMPTOMS
This article describes the updates for the following issues that occur in Microsoft Windows Media Player 9 Series and in Windows Media Player 10:



  • Windows Media Player may ignore a fractional STARTTIME value and a fractional DURATION value for a non-English locale.
  • A memory leak may occur when you play back DVR-MS files in Windows Media Player.
  • Script commands may not start in Windows Media Player after a seeking operation.

CAUSE
The following list is a brief summary of the cause of each issue that is listed in the “Symptoms” section, respectively:



  • The code in Windows Media Player that parses the .asx files relies on the English “.” character as the separating decimal symbol and did not acknowledge any other separating decimal symbol.
  • The Windows Media Player left the underlying filter graph in a paused state when it tried to shut down. This condition left references open and caused a leak.
  • A flag within Windows Media Player was not correctly set. Therefore, the timers did not start when the script command occurred.
