Default WMP11 Issue

anyone else have a problem when WMP11 sometimes won't close? or when you double click media it, sound starts playing, but WMP11 doesn't show up.

He might be right (what he said was useful) ;-)

When you plugin in WM5/6 smartphone, WMP11 is loaded in the background, to sync media via Windows Mobile Center 6.1. It also get loaded in the background when you are using Media Player "Quicklaunch" toolbar (minimize WMP11 to toolbar; in this case wmplayer.exe might be loaded automatically even after clean windows restart).

With these 2 things on, I experienced also several times that clicking on AVI/WMV video will not restore WMP11 window, but it will stay in the background, playing audio, video not visible. This is a definitive bug. To overcome this, I got used to pressing G9 key on my Logitech G15 keyboard, which is explixitly launching WMP11 before clicking on any AVI..

Are you experiencing it running in the background but no actual application showing as loaded?

I saw this happen on a friend of mine's system. We had to kill the process in the taskmanager to drop it from use. Definitely a bug/issue. Report it if you haven't already. I made sure my friend did.
