"Play All" has stopped working in XP

  3rdday 00:20 23 Oct 03

When I open a folder containing music files in Windows XP, there is a link at the side which says "Play All". If I click on this it should open up Media Player and play all the music files in the folder. It used to work, but now nothing happens. Nothing also happens if I select some files and then click on "Play Selection". I can still double click an individual file and it will play okay. It's the same for all music folders, not just one. I guess I must have changed a setting somewhere, but I don't know what. Any ideas?

do you have Grisoft's AVG software installed

Service Pack 1 for XP
fixes the problem.

No, I don't have AVG and I already have Service Pack 1.

click here

your problem i believe is in relation to the one on that link, there is a reg fle that will restore your WMA/WAV/MP3 PerceivedTypes settings this may work for you

Tried that, but sadly it hasn't fixed the problem.

goto start/run

and type

regsvr32 wmpshell.dll

see if that works

That hasn't helped either, I'm afraid

goto control panel/admin tools/services

and check to see if the IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service is stopped,disabled!

if it is change the startup to manual or automatic
